Inspired by 19th century hunting lodges with 21st century touches, this world-class executive lodge almost didn’t happen. With the project site located high up in the Colorado Rockies – nearly 9,600 feet above sea level – Britco Construction’s design team and project managers had their work cut out for them after learning that the client had been repeatedly told the project simply wasn’t possible.
The team took on additional aspects of the project in order to ensure a more successful outcome for the client. We built the majority of the modules in our off-site modular construction facilities, including the roof trusses. The use of natural materials, adding high-vaulted ceilings and rich timbers created a rustic yet luxurious setting. 20,000 square feet of hand-wiped stain added an aged look.
The main floor includes a 5-star restaurant and corporate meeting rooms with state-of-the-art conferencing technologies. An 1,800 square foot ballroom adds elegance to special occasions while the cultured stone fireplace is open to the exterior, offering guests the option of enjoying the warmth inside or cozying up to a roaring fire outside. The upper floor features barn-wood panelling in the lounge and the cigar bar showcases a wall of custom-built humidors.
