    It is probably the same construction as the Tram House at Jay. Only the stairwells have steel the rest is stick frame construction.

    That makes no sense to me. All major design of that hotel had to be completed before approval was given to start construction. For example, all facades, electrical, mechanical, room layout, services, entrances, and ADA requirements, would have already been designed and layout in the building application, before approval would have been granted. As far as interior design, I guess that might be an issue. But would think that would be small $$$$ compared to the overall project cost.

    I had the same thought. What design work is really left other than interior?

    The way it works is that the design that is submitted for approvals is only complete to a certain point, I think about 25%. This design has all the necessary info for approvals and cost estimates. Also that way if the approval process requires changes it minimizes the cost. All the detail drawings which are required for actual construction are done later. All the plans for the electrical and mechanical systems are usually done last. This is most likely the work that has been stopped.

    Is a local firm doing the design?

    Still trying to figure this one out????? WTF! Either way from here on out the first round of snowmaking at Qburke shall be know as "blowin' the beavers out" per Qdipshit.

    *In a somewhat related note, pretty sure I know where Burke gets it's water for snowmaking but looking to confirm. Can anyone help? Thinking they pump from the Passumpsic River up to the holding pond by the Willoughby Quad and then into the pump house and up the mountain? Don't see how else it could function.

    They just posted a new "Most Interesting Bear" ad to their Facebook page. It's not even funny or clever.

    Yes. They pump water from the Passumpsic to that pond. Northern Star added that line and infrastructure from the river in the late 1990's. HUGE improvement.
