Clubhouse at Bridger's Cache

Architect: Patrick Stephenson Architecture
Location: Grand County, CO
Building Area: 7,000 SF
Status: Completed

Project Description:

This ski-in/ ski-out timber structure clubhouse is situated near the Winter Park and Mary Jane ski areas and serves twenty home sites. Amenities include a large atrium, ski locker rooms, exercise and shower rooms and a two-lane bowling alley.

The mechanical systems designed for this project include two ventilation systems, one serving the upper level and one serving the lower level. The split design allows for energy savings as ventilation for unoccupied floors can be shut down when not needed.

Each ventilation system consists of a 100% outside air hydronic make-up air fan coil unit and a similar sized exhaust fan. Exhaust is pulled from the Men’s and Women’s locker rooms, ski locker rooms, bowling alley and near the steam shower room. The make-up air is tempered from outside conditions to 70 degrees using a Tekmar variable speed pumping control which varies the pump speed precisely to achieve a constant leaving air temperature to the rooms. Freeze stats are provided at each coil to prevent coil freezing and bursting in the case of mechanical pump failure.

The boilers used for space heating were high efficiency condensing boilers, which also served radiant floor heating.
