Project Detail

University of Montana New Dining Hall

Location: Missoula, MT

Enrollment grows steadily at the University of Montana, in Missoula, as a third of Craig Hall will be demolished to make space for a new dining hall, which will open its doors in 2024 and with an estimated 44,000 square feet will be the largest dining facility in the state. The new dining hall will have more food stations, study areas, rooftop access and windows that look out onto the Oval.

The U.S. Department of Labor’s Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) will oversee the construction of the new dining facility to protect the safety and health of workers employed by subcontractors involved in different phases of the project, including preparation, precast concrete, structural steel, HVAC, electrical, and roof work.

Design services include, Plumbing, HVAC, Temperature Control Systems, Fire Sprinkler Systems, Electrical Lighting and Power Systems, Fire Alarm and Site Lighting Systems.

The building’s mechanical, plumbing, electrical, and IT systems will all be updated. The mechanical scope includes a new heating hot water system and the elimination of the steam distribution system. Optimized cooling will be added to common spaces within the building. Electrical upgrades within the building includes new power distribution to dorm rooms and new lighting throughout. The exterior will feature an interpretative trail system for education on native plants and their uses as well as tribal narratives.
