The Three Forks Ranch Lodge and Spa is a Premier Wellness and 5 Star Luxury Resort nestled onto 200,000 acre Ranch about an hour north of Steamboat, CO. in Savery, WY. Nothing in the world can compare to the magic of Three Forks Ranch and everything it has to offer which includes miles of the finest Trout Streams in the world managed meticulously by its Professional fishing guides, private ski mountain in the wintertime and a one of kind Spa managed by Mayo Clinic Certified Well Staff members and last but not least a world glass Cooking Academy.
Wyoming and Colorado Mountain Beauty surround you from every angle of the property on the exterior and on the inside, you are surrounded by exquisite hospitality design featuring custom-made carpet, marble and porcelain, custom woodwork, and one of the finest art collections in the World. The Owner of Three Forks Ranch, Mr. David Pratt, has spent many years making his vision come to life at the Ranch and during the Spa Addition he worked alongside the construction teams daily to help transform his vision of the property and cross the boundary from a concept into reality and something that you can touch, feel and experience. As an Example The Therapy included in the pictures is one of only two in the entire world and was one of the biggest challenges of the project but since its completion is even more breathtaking than the concept pictures.
It's hard to put into words what this property does to your mind, soul, and spirit until you experience it yourself.
I have worked in the Flooring Industry for 17+ years and to date, I have never been involved in such a detail-orientated complicated, and overall majestic project. My knowledge of construction, process, and perseverance as a professional grew leaps and bounds during this project and I feel very blessed to be chosen to be a part of this masterpiece.
Along with the beauty of the Ranch came with it many unique challenges based on the location of the project. The Ranch is roughly 5 hours from our home base in Denver and where all of our installers traveled from. Based on its remote location we had to find housing near the property which the closest we could find was an hour drive in and an hour drive out every single day where there was one road in and one road out.
We started the project in August of 2021 when the sun was shinning late in the day and the roads were dry. We moved into Fall where the roads remained dry but we would get stuck in traffic jams of 1000's of Sheep and or Cattle clogging up the dirt road. We then entered the winter months where foot upon foot of snow would pile up on the road making it even narrower as well as dangerous for the crews.
Outside of the challenges of Travel was the challenge of the height of the installation and detail that was necessary to complete the project the standards that were given. Many times designs changed after installation and we would remove what was completed and go at it from another angle. Our crew understood this and didn't take it personally instead they kept their composure and moved forward.
With Perdium Jobs I have always understood the challenges of being proactive with staying ahead of construction supply shortages, material changes, and general construction deficiencies but this project it took on an entirely different level of commitment from everyone involved.
My crews showed an abundance of charisma and pride in regards to the level of the finishes and detail that was needed. They worked through difficult weather days where they could not even leave their cabins due to the amount of snow and then picked back up the next day sometimes driving two hours each way to make sure the production could continue.
For me, as a sales and project manager, it was my job to support them from a construction position of making sure they had what they needed to complete their tasks at hand but more importantly supporting them as a person who cared about their well-being, mental stamina, and general friendship.
Many days while onsite I would help with whatever I could whether it was cleaning up with a broom or emptying that trash for the men and women on our crew. Some days it was hauling bags of mortar, grout, or porcelain and stone to wherever it was needed. Whatever I could do to pitch in and help show that we are all on the same team and everyone is running towards the same end result. Sometimes my time onsite was measured in days and sometimes weeks, whatever it took was what I was committed to just like our crew members who were onsite daily
Most importantly, for me, it was to talk with them about how impressed I was with them as installers and individuals. To ask them what they needed from me and how their families were back home. I never left without a handshake or a hug from everyone on site because I needed them to know how lucky I felt they were there working so hard for Acierno & Co.
To say the least, Super Proud of every person involved in this project from start to finish!
