Civil 9 - Bridger Bowl Ski Lodge


Student Team: Colleen Walsh, Caleb Erb, Carson Thompson, Ryan Andrade
Advisor: Sushil Shenoy
Sponsoring Organization: Eclipse Engineering
Liaison: Sushil Shenoy

Our goal was to complete the design and structural drawings for the Bridger Bowl Ski Lodge in Bozeman, Montana. Eclipse Engineering, the sponsor company for the project, provided the architectural drawings for the ski lodge, which is an already existing structure. Our task was to use these architectural drawings and create a preferred structural design for the lodge. Our team considered all applicable loads in the structural design, including dead, live, snow, wind, and seismic loads. We have completed a design of all structural components, including the foundation, structural members, and connections. Standard civil engineering references, codebooks, and design guides were used during the design and analysis process to ensure that all necessary structural specifications were met. Our team utilized our structural and geotechnical abilities to examine design options to ensure a low cost and sustainable design solution.
