The Hotel Alyeska?-?Girdwood, Alaska
The Alyeska Resort featuring The Hotel Alyeska provides first-class, year-round accommodations for tourists from around the world. Crews constructed a new 315,000-square-foot, nine-story European-style, 308-room ski resort hotel with two independent pavilions, 15,000 square feet of meeting space, a banquet-style ballroom, and a connecting walkway to the new tram terminal.
Greeted by a polar bear scene in the grand atrium lobby, The Hotel Alyeska also features four restaurants, two lounges, and an athletic club with a swimming pool, sauna, exercise and massage rooms. The building consisted of a structural steel frame with architectural precast exterior panels and structural precast floor panels. In addition to the hotel, construction included four independent glue-laminated timber decking structures, a ski rental facility, gift and sundries shops, and a pool building. The facility also included extensive landscaping and site work to include a skating pond and outdoor activities.
