Montana's Tallest Building Gets a Fresh New Look For its 15th Floor

Holland & Hart unveiled its renovated Billings office space at First Interstate Center, the tallest building in Montana, that includes redesigned common areas, offices, and almost double the available space in meeting and conference rooms.

General Contractor Hardy Construction worked almost exclusively with local contractors over six months to complete the 15,600 square foot renovation of one and a half floors, which included 1,500 square feet of meeting space, creating a contemporary design with a light and airy feel. Light wood, soft-cream and blue accent colors replace dark wood, and interior glass walls allow natural sunlight from the exterior windows into interior spaces. In addition to spectacular views, the 15th floor reception area features a new steam fireplace. The updated common spaces and conference rooms are more appealing for firm employees and guests to gather and meet, following a trend of a number of newly renovated spaces.

The 12th and 15th floors now contains more than 1,500 square feet of total meeting space in seven conference rooms, five of which are video-conference enabled. The 15th floor main conference room houses an 18-person table and an additional 10 people can sit on surrounding benches. With panoramic views of the Billings skyline and a unique, frameless Kline sliding glass wall, it is the showcase of the renovated space. 

“We have been part of the Billings business community since 1980. We plan to make our newly renovated conference spaces available for our clients and business partners to hold meetings in downtown Billings,” said Beth Nedrow, the Billings administrative partner. “We want to thank our building landlord, United Properties, and particularly Danna Newell for all of her flexibility. We are proud that local contractors and vendors were responsible for creating this new modern, functional space, including Hardy Construction, Yellowstone Electric, Northwest Glass, NorPac, Star Service Neil Drywall, Enterprise Communication, and 360 Office.”

As part of the renovation, Holland & Hart donated most of the used office furniture to Yellowstone Boys and Girls Ranch.
