Energy efficiency was a big factor. The owner wanted to do as much as was feasible up front to help keep the operational costs as low as possible. SIP construction also offered time savings that were important in meeting completion deadlines.

The project was unique in that it was funded by a partnership between the city and a private investment group. The community did not have a restaurant or a hotel and the clubhouse at the city owned golf course was in disrepair. The city provided the land and removed the existing building. The investors constructed the new facility and provided some labor and management for the golf course. The hotel provides 10 guest rooms which have been a great addition to the community. Prior to construction it was a 25 mile drive for a hotel room. The community also has a new restaurant, and the lower level is available for wedding receptions, graduation parties, etc. Golfers have a new clubhouse to enjoy.
