Fraserwood Project:

Tahoe Beach Club

Lake Tahoe, CA

Offsite prefabrication for a constrained building location.

Continuing our 20 year partnership with Swaback Partners, Tahoe Beach Club presented a number of challenges that FraserWood was able to help resolve. Between the high altitude short building season, the delicate and constrained site, and the strictly regulated lakefront location, offsite fabrication was a necessity. Additionally, FraserWood provided expertise with concurrent Design Assist, fabrication of large curves, a specialty texture, and staged delivery to accommodate construction sequencing.
