Mosaic Architecture
428 No. Last Chance Gulch
Helena, MT 59601

The legacy of NorthWestern Energy’s continuation as Montana’s predominate energy company along with its bond and history with the community of Butte are not taken lightly as the company takes steps to define its presence for the next 100 years. From Montana Power’s beginnings in 1912, housed in the ‘Electric Building’ in uptown Butte to NorthWestern Energy’s current occupation of four historic ‘connected’ buildings, the power company has been a key partner in community for 100 years. The new 98,000sf facility will not only house 240+ employees in Uptown Butte, it is also designed to change the culture of the working environment, attract new employees to Butte, and stand as a testament to the commitment of NWEnergy to the Community of Butte. The new NorthWestern Energy Office Building at the corner of Main and Park will be a great addition to the ongoing history of Uptown Butte.

How to Be an Architect

Architects must be licensed before they can practice as an architect or call themselves an architect. There are three main steps in becoming an architect: education, internship and examination.

  • Education: The Montana State University School of Architecture offers a Master of Architecture professional degree that is fully accredited by the National Architectural Accrediting Board (NAAB). In the United States, most state registration boards require a degree from an accredited professional degree program as a prerequisite.
  • Internship: Most state architectural registration boards require architectural graduates to complete an internship in order to become licensed.
  • Examination: All states require the completion of the Architect Registration Examination, in order to gain licensure within the 54 jurisdictions covered by the National Council of Architectural Registration Board (NCARB).
