B&L Receives Best Firms to Work For Award

For the seventh consecutive year by Zweig Group Read More


Westcott Beach State Park Cottage Complex

What was the Challenge?

The New York State Office of Parks, Recreation and Historic Preservation (NYSOPRHP) was looking to have a standardized design created for cottages at the Westcott Beach State Park, which could be used for construction of similar cottage complexes at parks across the state.

How did Barton & Loguidice provide a solution?

Barton & Loguidice provided the engineering design of the structural, mechanical, electrical, plumbing and site utility systems as a sub-consultant to Saratoga Associates for the construction of a new cottage complex at the Westcott Beach State Park. The cottages were based on a single-story structure with two bedrooms and loft, wood siding, asphalt roof shingles, slab on grade foundations, toilet room with shower stall, full kitchen with electric range/oven, sink and refrigerator, propane space heater. The cottages were designed to have a modern aesthetic feel and accommodate up to seven occupants.

Why was the project a success?

The project success was a result of streamlined coordination and communication between Barton & Loguidice and Saratoga Associates. The cottage designs resulted in eight fully furnished cottages situated in the park to complement the scenic views overlooking Lake Ontario. These units have provided a template that the NYSOPRHP can replicate at other state parks. Our success can be measured in the full booking of these units, which are rented on a weekly basis from late Spring through Fall.
