“The Bakken Village” complex is a three story, 47,814 square foot building in the heart of “The Crossings” Development in Watford City, North Dakota.  On the first floor there is space for restaurants, commercial businesses, and offices.  This floor is open and inviting with ample parking for business customers to use.  The second and third floor contain 32 apartments, and these floors are securely separated from the open first floor spaces with private entrances only for residential use.   This building is designed to accommodate both housing and commercial space so a business can move to town and house their employees in the same building.  The sustainable structure is constructed to weather well in the harsh North Dakota winters.  The exterior walls are constructed with extremely energy efficient insulated concrete forms, providing continuous insulation on the whole exterior of the building as well as a substantially strong concrete structure.  The steel standing seam roof should last, and prevent any weather related damage for at least fifty years.  This building will provide an attractive, reliable, comfortable, sustainable place for Watford City businesses and residents to live and work for many years to come with minimal energy bills and maintenance costs.
