Gallatin Gold

  • SMA worked closely with Montana State University to design and construct a 70-bed residence hall as the third suite building in the Hedges Quad on campus.

  • The residence hall is a USGBC LEED® Gold building, which incorporates numerous sustainable strategies into design including solar panels, natural ventilation and daylighting, local and recycled materials, and recycling done by the contractor throughout the construction process.

Environmental Education Through Infographics

  • SMA seized the opportunity to design and implement educational signage relating to sustainability.

  • Infographics reinterpret the data used to satisfy requirements for the USGBC’s LEED® Certification Program to teach residents how the building and surrounding site has reduced its environmental impact.

  • Landscaping signage also informs passersby about plant, bird, and insect species that call the native landscaping home, while describing the native plants chosen to landscape the Hedges Quad.


Encouraging Exploration

  • In addition to educating residents about sustainability, the building also boasts topographic maps at each elevator/stair lobby.

  • To encourage residents to get out and explore the Bozeman area, wall graphics highlight nearby mountains and trails while providing driving directions to trailheads through the use of QR codes.
