Built on 16 acres at the Deer Valley Ski Resort, this LEED-Silver luxury lodge was designed in a "mountain craftsman" style, with four wings arranged in a butterfly pattern along a steep hillside. After uncovering webs of former mine tunnels at the site, Layton Construction stabilized the shafts and used excavated mine wasteas capped fill for a ski run. Unearthed old explosives were safely detonated on-site. In addition to the steep slope, structural issues included a high seismic risk, heavy snow-load requirements and a complex, multistory stepped roof.
