Forest Lodge Boathouse

PDSI was selected as the prime contractor for the Forest Lodge Boathouse project, which consisted of the removal and replacement of the existing elevator and windows, lifting the existing boathouse from its structure and replacing it on top of the new foundation. This was accomplished by using a sunken barge system which utilized the buoyancy of the barges to lift the structure from its existing foundation. Wood piling was installed to strengthen the integrity of the foundation. PDSI and its engineers re-designed the foundation system from the original plans and specs as a cost savings to the Forest Service. Site grading for new access road and landscaping was also performed. PDSI self-performed all carpentry and was the lead on the project. The project was completed on schedule with no injuries.
