Jason M. Hick, RE., President Structural Engineer – Hicks Engineering, PC
I am pleased to write this letter to endorse Andy Rowe and Alpenglow Homes in consideration for any upcoming residential or commercial building project.
I had the opportunity to work with Mr. Rowe and his company for the past six months during construction of a commercial building in the South Towne Square, at the corner of South 3rd Avenue and Kagy Blvd., Bozeman, MT. Hicks Engineering produced the structural drawings for the project, and Alpenglow homes helped bring the project to successful completion. “Building Number 1” is a wood-framed building incorporating many wall jogs, a complex roof structure consisting of various glue-laminated beams and a myriad of engineered truss types, and a large, battered wall. Additionally, a hanging mezzanine with a steel stair system accents the premier suite within the building.
Due to the complexity of the structure, Mr. Rowe provided the necessary coordination between the various design team members to incorporate the building aesthetic elements in compliance with the structural requirements. His subcontractors implemented their respective tasks with attention to detail, including maintaining a clean and efficient job site. Hicks Engineering performed frequent job-site visits to observe various stages of construction to evaluate plan deviations and document the completed work. We were continually impressed with the quality of work and willingness to implement required corrections to the structure to satisfy our high level of design detail.
Andy Rowe has demonstrated efficiency in his organizational skills, honesty in his dealings, and competency in his general contracting knowledge during my recent experience working with him. I enthusiastically recommend Mr. Andy Rowe and Alpenglow Homes for consideration in any upcoming building projects you are planning to construct.
