Located just 100 yards from the ski slopes in the heart of the Crested Butte Mountain Resort, Lodge at Mountaineer Square offers luxury lodging in the form of hotel rooms and condominiums, as well as first-class amenities including a ballroom and conference center. The complex comprises a podium structure and a superstructure consisting of two multi-story buildings.
We provided structural design services for the project, which was designed by BSA Architects. The Lodge at Mountaineer spans 275,000 square feet and includes a 72,000 square foot underground parking garage. The plaza level features transit, retail, a fitness center and skier services.
- The mandated maximum 75-foot height limit compressed space available for floor framing.
- The building’s structural system is steel frame with composite concrete floors, supported on spread footings. Precast concrete shear walls at the stair and elevator cores are utilized as the lateral force resisting system.
- The ground-floor ballroom has a column-free space achieved by using story-height transfer trusses to support the upper floors.
- The village plaza and garage are a hybrid of precast concrete basement walls and columns and slab-on-grade. The plaza deck is a topping slab with snow-melt system over a concrete and metal deck composite slab, supported by steel beams.
