Location: Fishtail, MT
Description: Firstmark provided preconstruction services to DOWL and the Owner in order to complete engineering services for a music hall, residences, guest housing, and dining hall.
Services included roadway and drainage design; survey, LiDAR, georeferenced aerial photography, potable water designs, septic system designs, site designs (geotechnical investigations, site drainage, and site surface), and 3D modeling and structural design and coordination of Owner contracted subcontractors and suppliers. The project included multiple aspects related to buildings located on steep hills and near a pristine stream. The designs are incorporated into the natural terrain to provide hidden parking areas, infrastructure components (water storage, emergency power generation, solar power, and maintenance equipment), buildings, preserving the views available from the project site.
The property is located in mountainous terrain, which required soil stability considerations along a majority of the road alignments.
Firstmark constructed all civil improvements and coordinated and supported installation of Owner furnished artwork. The project was completed within budget and on schedule.
