EDGEWATER HOTEL & WATERPARK

Krech Ojard was pleased to be involved in the design-build addition and renovation project that more than doubled the size of the Edgewater Hotel and added a great new water attraction to Duluth, Minnesota, the Edge Waterpark.

The new five story, 9,000 -square-foot/floor hotel addition created 64 new guest rooms, including five jacuzzi suites with gas fireplaces. Half of the new guest rooms overlook the new 18,000- square-foot Polynesian-themed waterpark, and half feature views of scenic Lake Superior.

The four-story waterpark is graced with an exposed, laminated wood beam-and-plank roof structure, including a raised-roof area accommodating two waterpark slide towers.

To maximize interior space and to add an additional element of excitement to the waterslides, portions of both four- story slides loop outside of the building. The existing 4000-square-foot swimming pool was incorporated into additional waterpark space, and 3,000-square feet of the existing hotel was renovated into a kitchen/concession area with a gaming arcade. Three floors of the new hotel were provided with 800-square-foot meeting rooms featuring floor-to-ceiling glass curtain walls on two adjacent sides, providing magnificent views of Lake Superior.

Analysis and design for storm water management was crucial, as impervious surface and water run-off limits were already at their maximum.
