This 365,000 square-foot, 154-unit luxury resort is located in Snowmass Village, Colorado, and is part of a multibillion dollar Base Village development project. The seven-level structure comprises precast structural concrete with cast-in-place topping slabs, and a structural steel roof. Amenities include two levels of subterrain valet parking, the renowned 8K restaurant and bar/lounge, a full-service spa, conference and meeting spaces, catering/banquet facilities, a fitness center, a retail area, onsite ski valet, and a shop and tuning center.
This project presented many challenges, including a limited labor market, remote location, harsh winters, establishing a workable budget, and nervous town residents who were reluctant to welcome change. PCL partnered with the client and developed a strategy and project mission statement to address these concerns. Under this model, the project was delivered below the established budget and, despite over 500 inches of snow in the first winter season, the project was completed three months ahead of the schedule. Additionally, by working closely with the building operator to overlap certain occupancy efforts, several weeks were saved in the building move-in period.
