The Liberty Mountain Resort and Conference Center is designed with a two-story lobby constructed with exposed timber framing, full height glazed wood windows, a monumental stair with built-in seating, an elevated walkway, and a stone-clad fireplace. The main lobby serves as the apex of the resort and connects the east wing, which is comprised of restaurants and guest rooms. The west wing includes the ballroom, conference center, spa, indoor pool, and golf pro shop. Additionally, the facility includes commercial kitchens, a bridal suite, golf cart storage, private dining, administrative offices, and laundry facilities. The interior finishes contain a vast array of materials from cultured stone, copper panels, custom wood ceilings, millwork, porcelain, ceramic and quarry tiles, epoxy flooring, custom rolled carpet, and exposed timber framing and fabric wall panels.
Black Hog restaurants were fit-outs in new and existing buildings. New mechanical units were required for the client. The project required selective demolition, restoration of the existing masonry façade and interior construction for the new kitchen, restrooms, dining and bar area. Exterior work at the buildings included new tile, masonry restoration, painting, and awnings. The interior finishes include polished concrete floors, glass mosaic wall tile, drywall partitions, granite countertops, custom millwork, corrugated metal panel ceilings, FRP wall panels, epoxy flooring, and painted accent walls. The work within the kitchen included the installation of kitchen exhaust hoods, Ansul systems, grease ducts, kitchen equipment, and walk-in coolers.
