The first new residence hall at Montana State University in over 30 years, this modern steel structure ushered in a new era of construction at MSU. Moment frames opened the building to large windows facing the iconic Bridger Mountains on the east face. Steel canopies and trellises pushed engineering limits, and a solar hot water system installed on the roof contributed to the certification as a USGBC LEED Gold building. An already challenging GC/CM project of 30,000 sq. ft., the structural design was completed only 6 months prior to completion of the full construction documents, and the building itself was completely constructed in 14 months.
