Earl Grey Golf Club
Structural Engineering Consultant
The Earl Grey Golf Club complex was developed in several phases, beginning with the original clubhouse built circa 1962, with the rest of the buildings following in various eras. The redevelopment project involved the demolition of the existing clubhouse and pro-shop structures to make way for the new clubhouse, showcasing a new chapter. A standalone cart storage facility was also constructed. The construction of the new clubhouse and the cart storage facility was staggered to maintain the course’s functionality as much as possible.
The new clubhouse contains a modern and expanded main dining room with separate banquet area, commercial kitchen, offices, pro shop, locker rooms, and service spaces. The separate cart storage building offers covered cart storage as well as a cart wash facility and members club storage.
Challenge 1: Maintain operations with as little disruption as possible to the functionality of the space during construction.
Solution 1: A staging of the demolition and construction of the new buildings was coordinated to allow for key operations to continue during the course of construction.
Challenge 2: Low floor-to -loor height restrictions to meet existing levels and surrounding grade.
Solution 2: Detailed coordination of column locations and mechanical system layouts was required to ensure a slim slab profile was achieved to work with the existing floor heights.
