After breaking ground in early 2003, the massive Lodge at Cedar Creek in Rothschild, Wisconsin opened for business in June of 2004 as a luxury, allsuite hotel with an authentic Northwoods lodge-type decor and an adjacent 50,000 squarefoot indoor water park. To ensure future financial success, Owner Bill Creske insisted that the architects, mechanical engineers and contractors he hired to work on this project maximize guest comfort and energy efficiency. He also wanted a unique and well-designed Northwoods lodge look inside and out to distinguish the facility as a highly desirable destination resort.
After an earthquake or seismic event, buildings containing essential services must be able to remain operational. Seismic certification of HVAC equipment provides assurance that the equipment will not only survive the earthquake, it will remain online and functional. Seismically certified HVAC equipment allows consulting and specifying engineers to meet the strictest seismic building codes, quickly and easily, without the delays of additional certification testing. Seismically certified HVAC equipment allows building owners to protect their investment.
