The team also maintained the integrity of the golf course grounds by performing directional boring for a gas line running to the job site. This choice was made after determining that trenching for the line would pose a public safety risk and impact the fairways and tees.
Design details within budget
When it came time to build the clubhouse, Stellar worked with IMCOM to design interior and exterior features that would fall within the budget, while adding a much needed fresh and modern appearance. “The rustic board-and-batten facade with a stonework base is not only inviting and beautiful, it’s also more cost-effective than traditional brick and stone construction,” Richardson says.
“By recycling the crushed concrete, we kept the waste from ending up in a landfill. The reuse of previous materials onsite helped us get extra credits to go toward the project’s LEED Silver certification.” — Bill Richardson, Project Manager, Stellar
Rustic themes indoors were implemented, too. The team gave the clubhouse’s ceiling old-world charm by using decorative faux wood beams. The beams, which look like they were carved by a chainsaw, actually are made of high-density urethane foam. By choosing this innovative material, Stellar was able to stay true to both the budget and IMCOM’s vision for the project. Stellar also saved IMCOM money when it installed epoxy floors in the clubhouse. The flooring’s sheen carries the elegant, up-to-date theme throughout the building. “By choosing to go with epoxy flooring, the Carlisle Barracks was able to save a considerable amount of money without compromising on beauty, durability or functionality,” Richardson says.
