WMI Completes Massive Additions to Jay Peak Resort

March 26, 2012

 

Windham Millwork, Inc has completed a two and half year project at Jay Peak Resort in Jay, Vermont.  WMI was the chosen woodworking company to complete four very large projects at Jay Peak.   The Tram Haus Lodge , The Clubhouse Suites, The Ice Haus Arena and Hotel Jay and Conference Center

The Tram Haus Lodge was the first of two very large hotels added to the mountain.  Inside the Tram Haus Lodge, WMI was in charge of providing all the casework, cabinetry, countertops, vanities, trim and headboards in the 57 suite’s.  The custom reception desk as you walk into the hotel was also manufactured and installed by WMI.  On the second floor of the hotel included Alice’s Table Restaurant, where WMI provided custom millwork, trim, countertops, hostess check in table and cabinetry

The Tower Bar displayed the craftsmanship and quality of WMI’s work with a beautiful bar, panelingtrim and countertops.  The foot rest on this bar incorporated old cable lines from the ski mountain which gave the bar a great touch.  Down the hall from Alice’s Table and the Tower Bar was Aroma Cafe and Taiga Spa where WMI was responsible for the custom millwork and woodwork involved in the service counter and reception desk inside the spa.  Tram Haus Lodge was just the beginning of additions in store at Jay Peak Resort.

The Clubhouse Suites was the next project Windham Millwork, Inc was called upon to provide outstanding quality millwork.  The Clubhouse Suites was located at the Golf Course at Jay Peak Resort.  Inside The Clubhouse Suites was a pro shop, restaurant, three large suites, locker rooms and recreation room.  WMI had the pleasure of providing the custom reception desk in the pro shop which is also used for check in and check out of the three suites they offer there.  Across the hall The Clubhouse Grille resides where WMI provided a large custom bar with caseworkcountertops and trim.  Inside the lobby of the clubhouse handrail and ceiling panels manufactured by WMI are present.  Downstairs resides the recreation room and the locker rooms where WMI custom built the lockers, casework, vanities and trim throughout.

The Ice Haus Arena is an indoor ice arena where hockey teams, figure skaters and curling teams can practice their craft at the resort.  Inside this magnificent building Windham Millwork, Inc provided all the millwork and casework at the snack bar and cafe as well as the rental area.  Countertops,  panelingcasework and trim were all millwork items WMI manufactured and installed in this building.

The largest project of them all was Hotel Jay and Conference Center.  This 176 suite hotel had just about every millwork item you could imagine inside of it.  Along with the 176 suites, Hotel Jay also had state of the art conference rooms, a cafe, two restaurants and a 50,000 sq ft indoor waterpark.  The 176 suites presented an extensive list of millwork items completed by WMI.  Vanities, custom mantles, countertops, trim, doors, door frames, base and kitchens were all on the list for WMI to manufacture and install.  Slat ceilings at the overpass bridges inside the hotel were also apart of the work load.  As you walk into the hotel you are greeted by a very impressive curved reception desk with beautiful birch trees and wall paneling on the back wall.  Buddy’s Mug Coffee Shop, The Foundry Pub and Grill and Mountain Dick’s Pizza were the three areas of the hotel you could grab some food and where you could witness some of WMI beautiful craftsmanship.  Custom millwork items like service counters, paneling, curved banquet seating, custom stainless steel bar, cabinetry and trim fill these food areas and truly make this hotel a unique and special place.  The impressive 50,000 sq ft indoor water park called The Pumphouse features a massive 140 foot bar that WMI built out of solid surface materials.  This bar overlooks the entire waterpark and has custom cutouts with lighting for a unique look at night.  Also in the water park the ticket counters, snack bar and cabana casework and countertops were all done by WMI.  Hotel Jay and Conference Center provided WMI to showcase all its talents on this project.

The Jay Peak Resort additions was an extraordinary project and one that WMI will always remember.  From the extensive miles of trim and 1,000 of cabinets built and installed over the past 2 years made this project one for the ages.  Windham Millwork, Inc is extremely proud of its work and its efforts from its crew to complete such a challenging project ahead of schedule and with outstanding quality. 

“I’ll reiterate again because it deserves to be, your crews did a fantastic job on this project. This was certainly a tough schedule and Windham did an outstanding job meeting both the expectations of the schedule and the quality of work put in place. Windham’s commitment to this project has been exceptional all while knowing the challenges that we were presented. We commend you for stepping up to the plate and allowing this to be a successful project for without Windham, it certainly would not have made it this far. Thank you, again, for all that you’ve done and we look forward to continued success with Windham.”
