Cape Fox Lodge
Location: Ketchikan, AK
Building size: 33000 sq. ft.
Number of modules: 46
Constructed in 1990, Cape Fox Lodge features quality construction in a remote area.
Lodging facilities were constructed on the steep banks overlooking the scenic Tongass Narrows.
The modular hotel buildings were constructed to match the lodge structure and had a complete turn around time of four months, from start to finish.
The fast-track nature of this project, due to weather-related conditions and mountainside restrictions, made modular construction the ideal choice for the project. Modular construction allows for simultaneous activities to occur, i.e. site development and foundations are completed while the building is being constructed. This feature not only reduces the completion time, but also lessens the ill-effects of the weather that a typical construction project would encounter.
Interior finishes included carpeted floorings in the living areas, high performance vinyl clad wood windows, ceramic tile in the bathrooms, taped, textured and painted sheet rock, clear grain Douglas fir wood trim and marble trims in the bathrooms.
