NPS Yellowstone Canyon Area Lodging Redevelopment

This project resulted in a significant upgrade in lodging at the Canyon Area in Yellowstone. In the 1960’s, “temporary” cabins were built to address a need for additional lodging at Yellowstone. The redevelopment of this site resulted in replacing all the cabins with five lodge buildings – with no net change in the number of guests that could be housed. Due to the very short building season at Yellowstone, this project utilized modular construction. Each lodge building is approximately 60’ wide x 250’ long. Each modular unit consisted of two lodge rooms with a corridor between the room. All three floors of a single building were stacked and in place in nine working day.
