Office & High-Rise Buildings

DC Engineering is unique in the engineering design and consulting business. We have the depth of resources and breadth of expertise of a bigger firm, however, our size, structure, and approach to business enables us to pay close attention to the detail.

This unique quality of DC is evident in our office buildings and high-rise projects. These projects range from multi-tenant office building to high-profile projects that become a showcase for ‘green’ design. Regardless of the project size or status, DC recognizes that every project has its own challenges and opportunities, and we strive to identify and address those challenges in a timely and cost effective manner through careful listening and planning, collaboration with our clients and other partners, and executing on a well-crafted design.


Highlighted Clients & Projects:

  • Garlington, Lohn, and Robinson Building

    Garlington, Lohn, and Robinson is a full service law firm with deep roots in Missoula, MT, and an extensive client base in Montana and throughout the country. In 2011, the company moved into its new building in downtown Missoula. The GLR Building is a 6-story facility that was awarded the USGBC’s LEED Gold Certification, through resource and energy efficient design, site location, and use of recycled and reused materials. DC Engineering was instrumental in this project, providing planning, MEP engineering design, energy modelling, and building commissioning services.

  • Anthem/Stevens-Henager Building
    DC Engineering teamed up Lea Electric and others to deliver this project in a timely and cost effective manner. DC designed the infrastructure, telecommunications, power distribution, interior lighting, energy compliance worksheets, and shell and core design of this 85,000 square foot 5-story office building. Careful pre-construction planning ensured flexibility in the electrical infrastructure, which proved to be a highly valued feature for incoming tenants. Design provisions supported the multi-faceted functional requirements of anchor tenant Stevens-Henager College, as well as the diverse electrical requirements of other tenants, such as Coldwell Banker, ClickBank, and DC Engineering also provided the electrical and mechanical design for the aforementioned tenant improvement initiatives.
  • Norco 
    Founded in 1948, Norco, Inc. has grown to become a leader in industrial gases as well as medical supplies and equipment throughout the West. DC has provided mechanical and electrical design services for a number of their new store build-outs over the years. Norco’s growth recently led to building a new 80,000+ SF office building. DC provided electrical and mechanical design, working closely with the Norco personnel, Larson Architects, and general contractor Petra, Inc. to complete this project on time and under budget. Electrical design included site coordination with the power utility. All-LED lighting, interior power distribution, and specialty equipment power design were provided. Mechanically, the building utilizes variable air volume systems with hot water reheat for the office and showroom areas as well as a blend of rooftop units, unit heaters, and split systems for the warehouse areas. A direct digital control system was also included in the mechanical design.



Over the past several years, we have had the opportunity to work on many projects with DC Engineering. We find their design and drawings to be accurate, cost effective, complete and of the highest quality. When our electricians work off of their drawings, the work flows smoothly and their designs are very constructable.
