Big-D Signature Featured in JLF Architects Film

Big-D Signature has enjoyed a longstanding relationship with JLF Architects that has now spanned more than 15 years. The two firms have collaborated on projects in Utah, Wyoming, and Montana. Recently, JLF released a short video that showcases the relationship between its firm and Big-D Signature.

According to a release, the video was filmed near Jackson, Wyoming. The film specifically highlights a Jackson Hole Residence that garnered the two firms “Home of the Year” from Mountain Living magazine in 2016.  “Here we create buildings that redefine home, designs greater than the sum of their parts,” the video continues, concluding with, “a building that has always been and always will be.”

The video also provides a behind-the-scenes look at the methodologies of constructing a home from conception to completion.

Big-D Signature Completes Clubhouse Renovation

By: Big-D Signature

Located just minutes from the historic Park City Main Street is the Park Meadows Country Club. The Park Meadows Country Club and its golf course have become local treasures in Summit County, Utah. The clubhouse was first constructed in 1994 and has since welcomed golfers from all over the world. In fact, its renowned Jack Nicklaus signature golf course is home to 10 PGA Senior Tour events.

The clubhouse had not seen a major renovation since its opening in 1994 and was overdue for significant systems and structure updates. In November 2016, Big-D Signature commenced a major renovation of the Park Meadows Country Clubhouse.

With spectacular views of Park City Mountain Resort (one of the largest ski/snowboard resorts in the United States), Big-D Signature teams would spend about a year constructing a 7,000 square-foot addition to the existing clubhouse. The project also included the remodel and renovation of the 16,500 square-foot facility. The goal was to transform the clubhouse into a state-of-the-art “mountain contemporary” facility.

The renovation carefully reconfigured the main floor to showcase the mountain views. There is also a seamless indoor/outdoor dining experience available to members and their guests. What is sure to catch your eye are the glass chandeliers that will guide patrons from the front entrance to a panoramic view of the golf course and Wasatch Mountains.

The official ribbon-cutting ceremony was held on the front steps of the Park Meadows Country Club on December 7, 2017. During the ceremony, Park Meadows Country Club president Greg Clark called the project a collective “team effort”. An unexpected four-legged guest briefly interrupted the ceremony to the amusement of guests and the Park Meadows Country Club staff.

Big-D Signature Completes Phase 1 of Victory Ranch Barn Project

By: Big-D Signature

Nestled in the mountains outside of Park City, Utah, is the private community of Victory Ranch. Big-D Signature is currently one of the contractors constructing several cabin homes at Victory Ranch. The cabin homes offer a getaway to the outdoors. Residents have exclusive access to several amenities at Victory Ranch, including mountain biking trails, the award-winning Rees Jones golf course, and a clubhouse called The Barn.

In fall of 2017, Big-D Signature completed the first phase of the Victory Ranch Barn project. The Barn is approximately 24,400 square feet. The facility is comprised of two buildings that feature a variety of amenities including the following:

  • Restaurant
  • Spa
  • Steam Rooms
  • Warming Hut
  • Basketball court
  • Juice bar
  • Exercise facility

While the amenities are exquisite, the finishes are what are sure to catch your eye when you step foot inside. “This is a project where the finishes are on steroids,” said Senior Project Manager Dick Whitney. The walls, for example, were constructed using reclaimed wood barn from North Carolina. Strategically placed ground-to-ceiling windows will provide residents and guests will an abundance of natural light. The windows also provide panoramic views of the golf course and the Victory Ranch property. A mixture of nostalgia collectible items is also featured throughout the facility.

On the lower level of The Barn, is a basketball court and game room for younger members. The Barn’s spa and Zen room are also on the lower level, offering a sense of tranquility and peace for those looking to get away. While the interior is ready to warmly welcome guests in time for the holidays, Big-D’s work is not done. Crews will return to The Barn in the spring of next year to begin work on a 75-foot swimming pool with a hot tub and winding water slide. The outdoor amenities will also include tennis courts and a bocci ball court.
