Glen Eagles Golf Club West Vancouver Restoration/New Build
In 2008/2009 the District of West Vancouver undertook a major restoration and addition to the Gleneagles golf course buildings. Tamlin was honoured to be chosen to work on this commercial project with Tom Bowen of KMBR architects. The challenge was restoring the Great Hall, which is a cedar milled log heritage building. As well as adding on a Golf Services Building that flowed seamlessly into the heritage building. Using our expertise in milled log and timber frame structures we were able to achieve this. Like Tamlin, KMBR has a commitment to functional and sustainable building design. This made working with them on this project was a pleasure.
Photos from the early 1950s when the Great Hall was built helped us to restore it as closely to the original as possible. The addition included a lobby area connecting the Great Hall and the rest of the addition. This included washrooms, a restaurant, and pro shop and an additional banquet space off the Great Hall. Coastal douglas fir and western red cedar was used through-out the building inside and out. It was a perfect marriage of old and new. Tamlin’s timber manufacturing and on site building team worked to keep the project moving forward in a reasonable timeline with as little disruption to the day to day business of the golf course as possible.
