Paradise Inn Annex and snow bridge rehabilitation

Location: Mount Rainier National Park

General contractor: Korsmo Construction

The Paradise Inn Annex renovation project refurbished a century-old, 22,000-square-foot chateau at Mount Rainier National Park. Designated as one of the “Great Lodges of the West,” Paradise Inn is a historic mountain retreat featuring 121 guest rooms. The four-story annex was built in 1920 as a wing to the main lodge. In summer 2018, while renovations were underway, Paradise Inn welcomed 4 million visitors. The renovation project posed numerous challenges while meeting the National Park Service’s strict guidelines to preserve the historic elements and aesthetics of the original building. Upgrades included foundation replacement; structural and life-safety upgrades; replacement of building systems, roofing and siding; repair and replacement of windows; site drainage improvements; mechanical, electrical and fire protection upgrades; energy-efficiency improvements; and new interior finishes and wood trim. A snow bridge connecting the annex with the main lodge received new siding, roofing, electrical systems and interior finishes.
