MSU Department of Agriculture Expansion Plan

This Montana State University phased development of 53 acres of land west of the main campus in Bozeman, MT, expands Department of Agriculture education services, as well as Rodeo Team and Equestrian Club training facilities. The master plan includes an additional 200,000 square feet of academic and rodeo arenas, with associated parking and staging areas; renovations to the existing Miller Pavilion; a new facility check-in and offices; an equine care station; horse and livestock facilities; a hospital barn; equine reproduction, exercise physiology behavior, and management labs; teaching facilities; and equipment storage. Bechtle Architects developed marketing images, narratives, 3D facility modeling, cost estimates, and an aerial animation for the facility to aid in fundraising and promotion efforts.
