The marina designed by T.W. Beck Architects for the Estes Valley Recreation and Park District, is located on Lake Estes in Estes Park, Colorado. The scope of the project included a convenience store, maintenance and service facilities, as well as administrative offices.
Log trusses and columns are utilized to enhance the aesthetics of the store. The building is oriented to take advantage of wonderful mountain views as well as conceal the maintenance shop entry door. A dark green metal roof and colored block walls were chosen to reduce future maintenance.
The Marina was completed as a cooperative agreement between the U.S. Bureau of Reclamation, who own the land, and the Estes Valley Recreation District.
The 3,095 square foot Marina building was completed in May of 2000, on schedule and within budget.
