On Friday, October 21, Senior Project Manager Tim Heinlein joined NESEA – Northeast Sustainable Energy Association for a Pro Tour in the White Mountains highlighting one of our projects, the Dartmouth College Moosilauke Ravine Lodge. The Lodge is a newly constructed 11,553-square-foot high-performance institutional building that combines the traditional character of a custom mountain lodge with ambitious performance goals.
The tour provided attendees with information about the Lodge’s design, materials, and state-of-the-art mechanical systems. Tim Heinlein joined Maclay Architects and others from the project team in speaking about balancing the project’s vision while maximizing building performance, minimizing site environmental impacts, and meeting Dartmouth College’s priority of preserving the character of the original Lodge.
This award-winning building is architecturally stunning and was built using an innovative hybrid log and timber frame structure. It integrates actual debarked trees up to 2-1/2 stories tall and numerous large boulders to offer a rustic feel, yet protected by a heavily insulated building envelope to achieve ambitious sustainability goals.
A big thank you to NESEA Pro Tours, Dartmouth College for hosting, and Maclay Architects for organizing the event.
