Sleeping Lady Conference Center
Ecotope provided design consultation, mechanical specifications, and construction oversight for a multi-million dollar conference center project in Leavenworth, Washington.

|The Sleeping Lady Conference Center was designed to
be extremely energy and resource efficient. The project includes
over 40 buildings at the site. Existing buildings on the site were
rehabilitated and reused in their entirety. Materials and construction
debris were re-used to minimize landfill impact. |
Attention to re-use led to the introduction of promising potential insulation technologies using construction debris.
The project incorporated innovative insulation and building performance measures, including large and small-scale heat recovery in residential, assembly, kitchen, and laundry applications. These systems utilized air, water, and process heat recovery technologies.
Ecotope was involved in all phases of this project, from design development to construction oversight. Ecotope provided mechanical designs and specifications for all of the buildings on the sight, including heating, ventilation, and heat recovery systems. A sequence of operations and outline control specification was also developed for project operation and energy conservation. Ecotope reviewed and consulted on the lighting design and control systems to reduce the connected load of that system, and worked with the local utility to develop an incentive package for the conservation measures incorporated into the project. The project was designed to exceed energy code conservation requirements by a minimum of 20% for each system. All work was extensively documented so that conservation alternatives could be compared in terms of their life cycle cost. Ecotope has also provided on-going construction review to ensure that the design intent is effectively carried through to project completion.
