Sustainable Practices - Forestry Harvesting
Berglund Construction was selected to perform construction services for a new full service Hotel in Schererville, Indiana. A modern, 4-story, 89-Room Hotel Facility with upscale amenities that include: Pool, Fitness Center, Reception Area, Sweet Shop, Business Center, Breakfast Area, Warming Kitchen, Laundry, Meeting Room, and Staff Offices. The structure is a all wood frame with EIFS facade exterior. The major challenge of the project was the site location. The hotel was situated in an wooded forest area. The site had to be prepared by harvesting the trees, grading the site and the entire structure sits upon a concrete retaining wall. In addition, Berglund was responsible for creating access to the site with three roads and a new 109 stall parking lot for patrons and staff.
