Modular building is becoming more and more popular these days, as people are realizing that it is faster, more efficient, green, cost effective and overall just a great way to build. There is no limit to what type of structures can be built in a modular fashion—schools, hospitals, homes, offices and more.
Currently, Nashua Builders is on the job to build a modular hotel: The Silver Creek Hotel in Bellevue.
Greg Anderson is the developer who is putting Bellevue on the hotel map. He started construction in September 2016 on the modern three-story Silver Creek Hotel on undeveloped land alongside Main Street toward the north end of town. Anderson is building the hotel as much for tourists as he is for residents of Bellevue, population 2,300 as much as for tourists.
The Silver Creek Hotel is being built on a mostly vacant lot at 721 N. Main St. in the Chantrelle subdivision. The 28,000-square-foot hotel will be composed of three stories with 57 rooms, with eight suites. The $5 million hotel was designed by Jay Cone Architecture of Hailey. The general contractor is Riemann Design & Construction of Hailey.
It is an exciting installation for Bellevue. Bellevue is the city where Wood River Valley’s working class sleeps, and does not usually host the many visitors to the Bellevue-Hailey-Ketchum-Sun Valley corridor, and when they do, their only lodging option is the 21-room High Country Motel—the only motel in town.
Anderson will build two multi-room suites into Silver Creek and there will be some luxury rooms, but he said 80 percent of the rooms will be “affordable,” maybe around $109 a night.
“I’m going after the average family in this valley,” Anderson said. “How many can afford $250 a night? That’s the entry level in Ketchum.”
The hotel will have a 300-square-foot conference room for 15 to 20 people and a 500-square-foot room for up to 50 people. The Silver Creek Hotel will also be helpful for visitors to the nearby Silver Creek Preserve, said Jeff Bacon, executive director of The Chamber, based in Hailey.
“The hotel gives Bellevue an opportunity to take advantage of the proximity to Silver Creek fishing,” Bacon said. “Overall, just having the ability to have a meeting place is going to be huge for the city.”
The Silver Creek Hotel is one step in a 20-year process of Bellevue expanding to the north, first with a Valley Market building in 1997 that Atkinsons’ Market acquired in 2003, and then with construction of Bellevue Square in 2000. A Family Dollar followed next to Atkinsons’ in 2012.
Nashua Builders is so glad to be a part of the natural progress and growth of this small town of Bellevue, Idaho.
Wherever progress is made, modular and prefab construction is not to far behind, and in fact seems to be leading the charge for modern times.
