Billings Clinic announces contractors, seeks public input for Bozeman campus
July 3, 2019
Bozeman, MT— Billings Clinic is announcing that Bozeman-based Martel Construction will be the general contractor for phase one of its new Bozeman campus. Billings Clinic acquired 54-acres near the 19th Street interchange along I-90 in West Bozeman in 2016. They are also announcing that Montana-based firms CTA Architects and Sanderson Stewart are designing and engineering the project. The companies selected have experience in the Bozeman region and across the state of Montana including extensive health care design, engineering and construction.
“As a Montana-based and governed organization, Billings Clinic is committed to working with local contractors and strengthening the local economy,” said Jim Duncan, president of Billings Clinic Foundation, “We look forward to partnering with the Bozeman business community.”
Billings Clinic is also pleased to announce that they have an agreement in place with a neighboring property owner to add a beautiful 4-acre parcel of land that is adjacent to Cattail Lake Park along Davis Lane. This land enhances the healing environment of the campus and provides future access to Davis Lane.
The Clinic’s first phase of development features a 97,000 square foot Destination Ambulatory Center with a multispecialty physician group practice, urgent care, and outpatient surgery center. The center will also house outreach services from Billings Clinic’s more than 80 specialties and have access to Mayo Clinic specialists through Billings Clinic’s Mayo Clinic Care Network affiliation.
In late June, the Clinic received unanimous approval of a growth policy amendment for its future medical campus by the Bozeman Planning Commission and City Commission. The City of Bozeman is in the process of designing the Davis Lane lift station and the sewer system that will connect with the Clinic’s campus. Infrastructure spurred by the Clinic project paves the way for significant development opportunities for southwest Bozeman, including the new high school.
The design phase for the project is well underway, which includes visiting medical campuses across the country that are incorporating innovative ideas for a medical campus of the future. The Clinic is also eager to get input from citizens in the Bozeman region. Community members are encouraged to visit www.billingsclinic.com/bozeman to submit comments and ideas about what they hope to see for the project. They are also holding in-person community listening sessions.
The Clinic will share initial campus and facility concepts as soon as feedback has been incorporated. Construction for the campus infrastructure is slated to begin this fall, followed by groundbreaking in the spring of 2020.
