Diamond Spring Lodge in Redwater, Alberta needed an expansion and renovation of the existing lodge. The project included demolition of one wing of the existing lodge (13 suites); renovations to the remaining lodge; and a two storey addition with crawlspace. The addition includes 24 new suites with a mixture of bachelor and one bedroom units, plus a number of amenity spaces—chapel, hair salon, activity rooms, commercial laundry, assisted bath, scooter storage room, lounge/flex spaces on each floor, and resident laundry rooms on each floor.
The lodge now has a total of 51 suites (27 existing suites remained). Renovations to the existing lodge included installing a sprinkler system, restoring an existing suite, converting the current hair salon into a reception office, enlarging the resident laundry room, and enlarging the staff room. The new exterior complements the finishes of the existing building. This was a Design-Build project with Krawford Construction.
