About the Project:

One Spruce Peak is a 6 story, 27 unit luxury slope-side condominium project located in Stowe, VT. The building’s architecture is inspired by the rugged peak of Mount Mansfield with a roofline that includes multiple gabled peaks.

“We think the next step for Spruce Peak Resort is to really capture the power of the mountain, the Notch, the power of the profile, and to really capture that in a way that is really going to feel like it belongs here and no other place,” says John Ashworth, Principal of Bull Stockwell Allen, the architecture firm behind One Spruce Peak’s designs.

EM-BOLT Technologies Used:

A total of (286) EM-BOLT Boltable Embed Plates have been specified to make the structural steel-to-concrete connections, enabling lower project costs and shorter project timeline by freeing welding resources to perform more valuable work.

Unlike field welding, attaching steel beams to EM-BOLT boltable embed plates is not weather dependent, which can play big role in the construction schedule when you are up against the ever-changing weather conditions that are present in the mountains of Vermont.

This project utilized three different models of boltable embed plates available from EM-BOLT:

  • Primed:  Standard primed model for typical interior applications
  • Thermally Broken:  Standard primed model with integral structural thermal break for interior applications when attaching to cold exterior concrete walls
  • Weathershield: Plascoat Thermoplastic Coated model for exterior applications when attaching exposed galvanized steel framing to concrete walls.
