Lakeside Resort Expansion - West Wing


HDR | CEI designed an innovative new building at Lakeside Resort and Conference Centre in Penticton, which overlooks the south shore of Okanagan Lake. The project is a modern, iconic addition to Penticton’s waterfront, and received unanimous support from Penticton City Council.

The six-storey, 70-unit hotel building, built by Greyback Construction, is constructed of mass timber. It is believed to feature the most extensive use of cross-laminated timber (CLT) panels in any building in the Okanagan.

CLT panels were produced locally by Structurlam and are used in all major shear elements of the building. They are used in the floor and roof, and in the vertical walls that separate decks on the exterior. The building also features exposed wood ceilings, large glulam columns and beams, wood stairs and stair shafts, and more throughout the building’s interior design.
