The owners recognized the need for improvements to restore the resort to its high standards as a first class destination resort. The redevelopment plan included improvements to the hotel, restaurant, convention center, and indoor/outdoor pool areas as well as offering vacation condominiums for purchase. Ramaker & Associates’ civil team provided much of the leadership required for this large undertaking.
Surrounding The Abbey Resort are environmentally sensitive wetlands, a pristine trout stream, and a state highway that made for a difficult regulatory review process. Ramaker & Associates’ civil team navigated through regulatory review and ensured successful approval. Ramaker & Associates also provided site engineering, surveying, condominium plat development, pool design, and stormwater management services.
