Paradise Inn Rehabilitation
Mount Rainier National Park, WA
This restoration of a National Historic Landmark originally built in 1916 provided seismic stability, accessibility and life-safety code compliance. The massive rehabilitation included the construction of concrete shear walls, replacement and/or reinforcement of the building’s foundation, replacement of selected mechanical and plumbing systems, realignment of the Inn’s East wing and installation of all new interior finished surfaces, while preserving the building’s historical elements like painstakingly de-constructing and re-constructing three stone chimneys.
