The iconic, secluded lodge includes a golf course, multiple fine restaurants, and breathtaking scenery
The iconic, secluded lodge includes a golf course, multiple fine restaurants and its breathtaking scenery provides an escape for city-dwellers. Converting a county-owned landfill into a 218,000 SF lodge and convention center was a significant yet rewarding endeavor. Construction involved difficult wood and concrete construction as well as significant site-development issues. The project includes a 195-room lodge, 700-person conference center, 18-hole golf course, and multiple indoor and outdoor recreation facilities.
Although refined and richly detailed, the project cost 20 percent less than comparable facilities. Sustainable elements included recycled, 100-year-old heavy timbers from an abandoned factory; salvaged wood flooring; light sensors to decrease need for electric lighting; daylighting; and energy harvesting using a small heat recovery system.
