Keystruct recently completed a major renovation for the Out Door Country Club located in Manchester Township, York County, Pennsylvania. The Club, a private, five-star platinum country club, was established in 1892 and has been at its current location since 1959. The club surveyed its members and determined that the creation of a new casual dining area was its number one priority. The membership voted to renovate the existing 19th Hole to become the new casual dining area. Keystruct was selected as the Construction Manager in March of this year.
Preconstruction work began immediately after award of the project. Mike Sola, Senior Estimator for Keystruct worked closely with the club’s construction committee and Danika Dallam of SAA Architects, to develop the project’s scope of work, final budget and value engineering options. Paragon Engineering provided mechanical, electrical and plumbing engineering services. Providence Engineering was the structural engineer. During pre-construction, the committee decided to add a completely new expanded kitchen. Key design elements of the project include a circular pizza oven with a window so members and guests can see their pizza being cooked as well as a display kitchen. The dining area features a large bar and seven large flat screen TV’s.
The project also includes a new patio, containing a fire pit surrounded by casual seating, adjacent to the practice putting green. This space provides members with a place to relax and take in the breathtaking view of the club’s golf course.
Jason Miller was our project manager and Kenny Hoke was the project superintendent.
Chef Bill Evans suggested a new name for the area “Bistro on the Green.” The Board of directors approved the new name and Bistro on the Green opened on June 19, 2015 to an overflowing crowd. The new area has been very busy since it opened. It has provided the membership with an exciting new casual dining option.
