McMenamins Hotel, Kalama, Washington

Client—Collins Architectural Group

Gibbs & Olson was recently selected to provide site design and limited construction phase services for the new $9.8 million McMenamins Hotel. The three-story hotel will have 40 rooms, plus a rooftop bar with a view of the Columbia River. The first floor will include a brewery, restaurant/pub and bottle shop. Additionally, there will be two meeting room spaces, each capable of holding 50 people.

The hotel/restaurant and small pub buildings will require: site grading; temporary erosion and sediment control; water and sanitary sewer connections to existing utilities; and stormwater collection, treatment and discharge per City of Kalama requirements. Parking lot and sidewalk/trail design will be included in the site layout. Final design work was complete in September 2016. The facility is scheduled to open late fall of 2017.
