Alta Ski Area Wildcat Building Sustainable Design Assistance and LEED Certification
Supporting Sustainable Design in Utah's Ski Country
Brendle Group has been providing energy and sustainability planning services to Alta Ski Area since 2008. In addition to energy audits of all buildings, we’ve conducted a site-wide renewable energy study and energy baseline and forecast to estimate new load growth for items in their master land use plan.
Most recently we worked with Utah’s Alta Ski Area to support the design and development of a new ski area base facility. The firm served as a sustainability and design consultant for Alta, supporting a wide variety of tasks that included selection of the design-build team; selection of a commissioning consultant; reviewing and commenting pn project pro forma; and developing a set of sustainable design guidelines for this and other ski area buildings. Brendle Group also led up the LEED certification process, facilitated a project charrette, advised on various energy options, and conducted energy modeling.
