Stones and woods from a 500-mile radius of the property.
EcoSolution 100% nylon carpet with low emitting adhesives.
Waterless and low-flow plumbing.
Low VOC (low odor) paint.
Recycled porcelain.

In a letter to Keith Fernandez, President of VRDC, Richard Fedrizzi, the President, CEO and Founding Chairman of the US Green Building Council (USGBC) states that “LEED Gold Certification identifies the Jackson Hole Golf and Tennis Clubhouse and Proshop as a pioneering example of sustainable design and demonstrates (VRDC’s) leadership in transforming the building industry.”

Donna Figg, Director of Hospitality Design for Slifer Designs, teamed with Sarah Carr, Project Manager, Lori Gleason, Project Manager and Cate Grasch, Production Coordinator.

“Our green design capabilities and expertise have strengthened with the completion of this project,” said Figg. “With the increase in green awareness and source offerings, we are able to create genuine green design.
