The entire team is looking forward to building on the substantial progress we have achieved over the past months in advancing the Yellowstone Club Core Village construction project in Big Sky, MT. Battling the Montana winter this year countless manhours and consumables have been spent towards keeping areas warm enough to install products on the exterior and interior of this 475,000 square feet (44,129 square meters) Core Village project. It takes a lot of manpower, propane and mental toughness to work in these damp, freezing conditions daily. As spring begins, frequent thawing and freezing cycles continue. Nevertheless, structural steel and structural concrete has been completed, metal roof decking on Area 4 (Spa Building) has been installed, and the roofers have battled the conditions and managed to continue to dry-in the roofs on Area 1, 2, and 5. The site concrete retaining walls are underway along with plenty of other exterior work. The exterior punchlist process began in March on Areas 1 and 5. Exterior sheathing is wrapping up on Areas 3 and 4 and windows installation is following right behind. Tower Crane #2 has been removed to allow construction crew to finish the plaza work.
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.
