If that's what you're going for, you could use small building blocks to lay the foundation for the larger structures that wouldn't ordinarily work on such uneven terrain. (My Cardassian city had lots of rocks in areas too, requiring me to "pave" over them with building blocks as foundations).

Think about it this way:
  • in the deep snows on Andoria - wouldn't you raise buildings above the surface with gratings to allow snow to accumulate beneath the buildings, preventing buildings from being encased in snow drifts?

Connect building blocks with gratings/girders and put the building on top of them. It may work better than you think: and make this area look more functional that buildings in the middle of nowhere.
