Construction was recently completed on the new two-story, 9,000-square-foot commercial building for Excel Physical Therapy, located at 1823 West College Street in Bozeman. Nishkian Monks participated in the project as the structural engineer of record, working directly with Bitnar Architects and general contractor Langlas & Associates. Developed by Excel Physical Therapy partners, the project gross area is approximately 6,000 square feet at ground level, and 3,000 square feet on the upper level. Architect Thomas Bitnar designed a façade that incorporates seamlessly into the neighborhood of Bozeman’s busy 19th and College gateway. The two-story windows on the southwest facade provides glimpses of the climbing wall and other activities taking place inside, while filling the interior with natural light. The structure is built at a level site and is founded on conventional concrete strip and spread footings with a slab-on-grade at the ground level. Above grade, the exterior and interior walls are of light-framed wood construction with thin set brick veneer and metal corrugated panels at the exterior walls. The roof framing was accomplished with pre-engineered gang-nailed trusses.
The recently completed new commercial building, The Palisade, illustrates the changing tide in the fastest growing and highest density of residential neighborhoods on the west end of Bozeman. Nishkian Monks participated in the project as the structural engineer of record, working directly with Bitnar Architects and general contractor Langlas & Associates. Developed by Paine Group, Inc., The Palisade is a 6,600-square-foot commercial building located at 630 Boardwalk Avenue. The structure is located at a gently sloping site. Above grade, the exterior and interior walls are of light-gage metal stud construction with thin set brick veneer at the exterior walls. The roof framing is accomplished with pre-engineered open web steel trusses. The building is founded on conventional concrete strip and spread footings with a slab-on-grade at the ground level.
The building boom sweeping Bozeman is hard to miss, between giant holes in the ground and construction crews closing down streets, there is a lot of development on all fronts. Early this summer a new restaurant called Sidewinders American Grill opened on the west side of town. The building features 8,000 square feet of space with a large bar and rooftop seating. Thomas Bitnar Architects has designed the restaurant building collaborating with general contractor Langlas & Associates, and structural engineers Nishkian Monks.
The structure was built at a level site. Above grade, the exterior and interior walls are of light-framed metal stud construction with thin set brick veneer at the exterior walls. The roof framing was accomplished with pre-engineered gang-nailed trusses by Simkins-Hallin, Inc. of Bozeman. The building includes a partial basement, upper level deck, kitchen and restaurant area, and is founded on conventional concrete strip and spread footings with a slab-on-grade at the ground level.
Construction is wrapping up on a new condominium building tucked off South 19th Avenue in southwest Bozeman. Sitting on 2.0 acres at the intersection of Graf St. and Enterprise Blvd. in Meadow Creek Subdivision, Talbach House is in a prime location close to the Oracle office campus, and within minutes to Montana State University and Downtown Main Street. The brand new three-story condominium building consists of 66 condominium units totaling 64,652 square feet (6,006 square meters). Bitnar Architects served as the master architect leading the design, collaborating with developer and builder Cadius Partners dba CP Haus, and structural engineer of record Nishkian Monks.
The condominiums at the Talbach House range in size from 625-square-foot one-bedroom, one-and-a-half bath options to two-bedroom, two-and-a-half bath options with just over 1,000 square feet featuring high ceilings, open floor plans, 8-foot tall, sliding glass windows with breathtaking views, large entertaining kitchens, and higher-end interior features as well as European-inspired design elements. Talbach’s secure building includes two exercise rooms, 1G internet speeds, outdoor storage, and 112 parking spaces on-site. With Meadow Creek Subdivision’s protective covenants and architectural guidelines, the Talbach House offers spectacular views of the Bridger, Spanish Peaks, Mount Blackmore and Tobacco Mountain ranges, open-space parks, walking/hiking trails, recreation, and other amenities.
The structure is on a gently sloping site, which required some cut and fill to allow a ground level with no interior steps. Above grade, the exterior and interior walls are light-framed wood construction with wood siding at the exterior walls. The roof framing was accomplished with pre-engineered gang-nailed trusses. In addition to the residential building, the project features covered parking with storage rooms. The building is founded on conventional concrete strip and spread footings with a slab-on-grade at the ground level.
With one-bedroom units starting around $173,500, the Talbach House provides home buyers a comparatively affordable option in Bozeman. As the project finally wraps-up, exterior siding panels are being installed giving Talbach House its contemporary look. These past few weeks crews have installed the lobby windows leaving an inviting space for resident mail and the lounge area. Steel staircases on the East end and the North end of the building were also installed. Talbach House also includes two elevators and a staircase in the center of the building. Installation of the steel balconies throughout the building have been completed. The balcony structure will accommodate the 5’x17’ steel and concrete balcony area on the second- and third-floor with glass railings and metal privacy screens. The first-floor suites will have a concrete patio walking right out to the grass area. Interior work is also near its end. The project is expected to be completed before the end of Q2-2017.
