As spring gives way to summer, construction crews are making swift progress at Yellowstone Club Core Village’s ongoing, $312 million mixed-use base village project to add more amenities for its growing list of members. Andy Sandoval, GE Johnson Construction Company’s project superintendent, sheds light on the progress being made at the largest construction project ever to take place in the Rocky Mountain region.
“The precast erection from Stresscon had a great month by erecting 556 pieces. The total piece count now stands at 2,762 pieces erected and 62% complete for the total project. To date, 768 precast deliveries were made travelling from Colorado Springs to Big Sky, MT. That’s a round trip of 1,617 miles or a total 1.2 million total miles of trucking just to get the team to this point of the structure. The largest piece of precast concrete for the project weighing approximately 83,000 pounds was installed this past month. Our GE Johnson/Jackson and Schmueser concrete crews also eclipsed a nice milestone in the last month by placing our 10,000th cubic yard of concrete for the project. Earthworks group has also continued backfilling the foundations within the building footprint as well as the exteriors of the building right behind A+ Waterproofing installing the foundation waterproofing. Encore Electric has continued doing the in-slab rough in, overhead rough-in and underground work for the project. Thus far, Encore has installed over 30,000 feet of conduit for the project. That’s 5.7 miles of conduit! Encore Electric and Apollo Plumbing and Mechanical have expedited their work by each pre-fabricating over 3,000 man-hours worth of product at the Bozeman Hub facility during the winter months inside a controlled environment saving the project both time and money.
In Area 1, True North and Sowles completed the Area 1 steel structure and Rooftop Solutions has completed the roof dry-in for Area 1. This has allowed Advanced Fireproofing to begin spraying the steel structure on Levels 3 and 4. Safway Scaffolding is nearly complete installing the scaffold around the Area. This has allowed SCS Drywall to complete a substantial amount of exterior framing and sheathing on the levels below. Patriacca Construction is right behind them installing the exterior envelope and aluminum clad wood windows. Patriacca has also been busy in our Bozeman Hub fabricating the exterior timbers to prepare them for installation. Gallegos Corporation is busy in this area installing the steel lintel angles and will begin installing stone in the next two weeks. The first elevator should be ready for construction use by the end of the month.
In Area 2, precast erection has been completed on the East side. The West side of this area is currently getting garage walls and shafts completed with the CMU while Paradigm is continuing to place the concrete slabs on the West side through Level 3. Area 2 is nearly fully connected to Area 3 making the building perimeter of the structure easily defined visually. The conventional cranes are now setting in Area 4 and beginning to work their way out of the project. As the cranes move, the foundations in Area 4 is rapidly progressing and completion is anticipated to be as scheduled.
Area 5 and 6 are also off to a great start. In fact, the Area 6 (The CUP), is the first Area to have exterior stone installed. The CUP has also completed all the structural ramps and Superior Waterproofing has completed the hot-applied waterproofing and protection board and foam on the upper level. 4G has installed the hydronic snowmelt in the topping slab for the ramp and it will be placed next week. Inside the CUP, generators, boilers and other major infrastructure are in place and being hooked up to be the lifelines of the project by this coming fall/winter. Western States has installed the fire protection systems inside and the waterproofing and exterior backfill are in progress around the perimeter. Sime has now completed the work around the pond to allow the CUP and the project to connect to the Yellowstone Club infrastructure. Area 5 is busy getting the framing and MEP rough-in going on the interiors. Steel Erection is continuing on the North side of this area and the South side began metal decking for the roof. The Area 5 exterior scaffolding is going into place and the exterior framing and sheathing have begun and are right behind the scaffold erection.
We are now over 300 employees on site and will begin running the 6th daily bus on June 19th from Bozeman to the jobsite. This project represents employees from 38 states boasting multiple nationalities and who can collectively speak over a dozen languages. The ages of the men and women on site vary from the ages of 18 through 74 years. Our entire team here have shown through their efforts and actions thus far that construction may be the greatest team sport!”
