Hayden was awarded a unique project in 2005. Great Wolf Lodge was to be built in the Poconos, a first-class, full-service, year-round family resort. Hayden was responsible for the electrical needs of the indoor water park area within the lodge. Lighting the pools was a pivotal part of the project, especially the underwater lighting. Power and motor control functions were also needed to operate water filters, pumps and treatment systems. Other major concerns for the owner were humidity levels, ambient temperature and adequate ventilation.
There were six indoor water pools and an outdoor activity pool that the Hayden team provided electrical construction for. Our team performed flawlessly when dealing with motor controls, as it is one of our specialties. With safety always coming first, heavy grounding, due to the obvious hazards created by water and electricity, was necessary. In conjunction, every metal projection had to be grounded, from handrails to the activity equipment itself. Grounding the intricate spider web of concrete rebar was also a necessity. Anti-corrosive materials were needed because of the high humidity and chlorine environment.
- A multi-million dollar, world-class development was built to capture Northeastern Pennsylvania’s outdoor vibe and essence.
- The log-sided resort and water park has an outdoor activity pool, premier indoor wave park, indoor wave pool, 90-foot tall indoor water feature, 11 water slides, six pools, interactive tree house, and a water fort with a nearly 1,000 gallon tipping water bucket.
