The Paradise Inn is a historic hotel built in 1916 at 5,400-foot on the south slope of Mount Rainier in Mount Rainier National Park here in Washington. The inn opened on July 1, 1917, and is named after Paradise, the area of the mountain in which it is located. This was a multi-phased project that involved lifting and holding a four story section around a hundred feet long for new foundation reinforcement.
We had to apply tension devises throughout the building section to shift the upper story approximately 1 foot to correct damage caused by severe snow pressure that had caused an imbalance on the foundation. We then moved to the dining hall section, that involved designing and installing lifting devises to support the historical timber columns while new foundation pads were constructed. We provided lift and rigging services for several other areas for the entire renovation of the lodge.
