This project involved planning, design, permitting, and construction phase services for the renovation of a historic six story hotel, long considered the anchor of downtown Saranac Lake, New York.
North Woods Engineering provided services from the schematic design phase forward. Development included new construction of a two story parking structure, and renovation of a six story historic 42,000 square foot building. Specific items of work included overseeing geotechnical investigation, replacement water service, erosion control and stormwater management, footing and foundation design of the parking structure, site grading and structural work throughout the building. Multiple bid packages were prepared to accommodate the project time frame.
The services included full site and structural design, plans, details, specifications, and permitting for all portions of the site and building development. We also coordinated with the Owner, Architect, M/E/P consultant, and Construction Manager.
The main hotel reopened for business in January 2018.
