Engineering News-Record recently published a list of the largest new projects started in the Mountain States region last year. The list ranks the 60 largest projects that broke ground and real construction got under way on them between January 1 and December 31, 2016. The projects are located in the following states: Utah, Colorado, Wyoming, Idaho, Montana, and the Dakotas. The 2016 list of top starts is ranked in order by dollar volume, and shows the cost of the top projects in the region totaled over $4.5 billion. The list also enumerates an impressive mix of public- and private-sector work reflective of the growing economic diversity of most states in the region, with projects launched in the health care, hotels and resorts, transportation, educational facilities, office, mixed-use, and multi-family residential sectors.
At the top of this year’s regional list is our Yellowstone Club Core Village project, a 475,000 square feet mixed-use base village in which 48 ultra-luxurious residences, a spa, pool, fitness area, restaurants, and full-skier service facilities are being added to Yellowstone Club, a world-class private resort in Big Sky, Montana. With a $312-million construction cost, the Yellowstone Club Core Village is one of the largest projects in price and size in the history of Montana.
The Nishkian team is incredibly proud to be involved in the Yellowstone Club Core Village project. Credit and kudos also go to our project team: Hart Howerton, GE Johnson Construction/Jackson Contractor Group JV, Stresscon/EnCon United, Cross Harbor Capital Partners LLC, Discovery Land Co., Yellowstone Development, and everybody else involved. We are thrilled for a great start on the largest project in the Rockies!
