This was an approximately 145,000 square foot, three and one-half level post-tensioned concrete structure with office areas plus stair and elevator towers. Construction began in the fall of 1999 and was completed in early winter of 2000. The project was held up initially due to unforeseen soil conditions encountered. This delayed the project approximately one month.
The structure was completed in the Great Northern Town Center area of Helena, which is an extremely tight construction area. While this project was under construction, three other multi-million dollar projects were being constructed less than one block away. Coordination and pre-planning the construction sequencing was critical. We self performed most of the work on this structure. At completion, we had utilized almost 18,500 linear feet of piling, 5000 cubic yards of concrete, and expended almost 40,000 man-hours. In order to complete this project, day shifts, night shifts, and weekend shifts were utilized. Dick Anderson Construction will do what it takes to complete a project. At the end of construction we were very fortunate in receiving the first place concrete excellence award for the project from the Montana Contractors Association.
