Talk on Sperry Chalet is next week

Print Article

The National Park Service in partnership with Glacier National Park Conservancy will host an evening about Sperry Chalet on Feb. 13 at the Red Lion Hotel in Kalispell.

The original talk was postponed because of the government shutdown.

The Park Service’s Denver Service Center, the construction branch of the Park Service, will host an industry night for construction contractors interested in bidding on the 2019 Phase 2 of the Sperry rebuilding project. Phase 1 of the project was awarded to Dick Anderson Construction and was completed in 2018. The industry night will be in the Fireside Room from 5-5:30 p.m.

Following the industry night, the Glacier National Park Conservancy will host a public open house celebration in Ballroom A from 6–8 pm to reflect on the success of Phase 1, and talk about the future of the public-private partnership. Adele Scholl of Gravity Shots, and Amy Boring of Amy Boring Photo will share videos, photos, and stories of the wintertime monitoring overflights and construction season. Sperry Chalet concessioner Kevin Warrington will share his thoughts on the project, and Anderson Hallas Architects, the firm selected to complete project design will share highlights and design challenges from their perspective.

The event is free, and open to the public.

Glacier National Park and Denver Service Center staff will also be on hand to answer questions from the public and provide a look ahead to the 2019 construction season.

The Park Service expects to announce and award the construction contract for Phase 2 of the Sperry project later this spring.
