Multi-Use Designed for Future Growth

The Ravalli Electric Co-op (REC) is a nonprofit electrical utility provider near Victor, Montana. The REC’s former site had served the community since 1946. However, due to the Bitterroot Valley’s population increase, housing growth, and technology changes, it became clear that it was time for an upgrade.

The new facility is a 19,400 sq. ft. space that includes office spaces, community meeting areas, warehouses, a vehicle garage and services, and several supply storage areas. This new facility is electrically powered, highly functional, and also provides a sustainable welcoming environment with natural light and features like energy-efficient HVAC solutions.

The structural, electrical, and mechanical engineering design provided MMW Architects create a multi-use facility to meet REC’s goals and sets them up for future expansions to meet the needs of this growing rural community.
