Thornton Tomasetti provided structural design services for Mountaineer
Square, a large mixed-use residential, retail, and transit center at the base of
the Crested Butte ski area in Colorado. This new mountain village combines
the community’s need for a sense of place with the resort’s need for first
class amenities and a warm bed base at this destination locale.

The plan incorporates viewsheds and indigenous architecture with 750,000
square feet of mixed-use development constructed in phases (210,000
square feet of residential area). The building structural systems are steel
frames with composite concrete floors, supported on spread footings. The
village plaza and garage is a hybrid of precast concrete basement walls and
columns, and slab on grade. The plaza deck is a topping slab with snow-melt
system, over a concrete and metal deck composite slab, supported by steel
beams. Precast concrete shear walls at the stair/elevator cores are utilized
as the lateral force resisting system. The ground floor ballroom has a column
free space achieved by using story height transfer trusses to support the
floors above.
