Green River State Park Campground Grocery
This project under a very limited budget provided a challenge of resolving program needs with code required modernization. ADA issues had to be resolved while providing for much needed program space with replacement of a building envelope that had reached it life cycle potential. Green design options were chosen that balanced with the construction budget while offering life cycle consideration that will provide a contribution to good earth stewardship.

Green Design Features
SIP Structural Insulated Panel building envelope will provide long term utilities savings while offering a quick enclosure so that many existing structure components could be slavaged.
The SIP panels allowed for the retail space to access the space that traditional would have been unconditioned attic to become light filled retail space.
Relocated recreation space from the existing basement area to the main floor level to provide a space that had access to views of the lake and opportunity for fresh air ventilation.
Ice machine relocated off the porch area to provide a lake view porch space for campers to enjoy a snack purchased at the store.
Existing basement area was transitioned from recreation space to the sole purpose of severe weather shelter.
HVAC system was replaced with new energy efficient units with a new duct soc overhead air distribution. This replaced the floor registers system that had the potential for infiltration of dust and moisture concerns.
The window and door openings in the new building envelope are insulated glass with low "E" coating to provide natural light with protection from heat gain.
All lighting are florescent highly energy efficient units providing a life cycle cost savings on maintenance and utility cost.
