SERVICES WE PROVIDE
Residential & Commercial Structures

Bozeman Public Library
Client: City of Bozeman, Montana
Located in Bozeman Montana on the historic East Main Depot site, this striking 49,000 square foot structure was a leading energy efficiency project and was awarded a silver LEED certification. A showcase facility that now anchors both the revitalization of East Main in Bozeman and the trails at Lindley Park, the Bozeman Public Library was the first LEED public building in Montana .
Prior to joining RPA, Mr. Schlegelmilch was the principal structural engineer and designer for this two-story steel frame and wood structure. The building is a unique combination of glulaminated wood and steel roof structural elements and steel floor systems. The lateral load elements are welded moment frames.
Blacktail Deer Creek
Stream Rehabilitation and Bridge Replacement
Client: Beaverhead County, Montana
This project consisted of 1900 linear feet of stream rehabilitation to both increase the habitat of native fish and increase the flow capacity of the Blacktail Deer Creek through downtown Dillon Montana. With that came the replacement of five total bridges, two pedestrian, 2 which are vehicular bridges and one an irrigation crossing of Owens Ditch over the Blacktail Creek. The stream work utilized a large amount of redi-rock precast retaining wall sections which were architecturally blended into the supporting foundations for all structures.
The vehicle bridges are precast tri-deck sections spanning 45 feet on pile supported concrete abutments. There were numerous design and construction constraints on these bridges including major utilities, a railroad paralleling the project, sensitivity to various landowners and other interests given the location within a densely populated environment.
