This project consisted of creating office space for Intermountain to serve the Helena community and surrounding areas, as well as creating a wing designated for a lecture hall and board room to be utilized and rented by the public.
The building consists of wood stud construction, with a facade of brick veneer and metal wall panels. The windows throughout this building are aluminum storefront style with Desco Window inserts. This project’s critical focus was to provide a clean and attractive space with a high consideration given to sound disturbances. Added measures were taken at every penetration to minimize sound transmission between office spaces in this building.
This project had a three-phased schedule to accommodate the client’s occupancy needs, allowing them to occupy areas as construction progressed. Wood framed walls were panelized and erected to accelerate construction. By obtaining a foundation permit ahead of schedule, construction began prior to a completed design. The owner was able to occupy the main floor office space the last week of December 2012 as requested.
