BHB provided civil and electrical engineering design for the new Granbury Resort Conference and Visitor’s Center and the Granbury Boardwalk located on the shore of Lake Granbury. This project redeveloped an older, poorly utilized site into a new, upscale amenity for Granbury. The boardwalk was designed with low maintenance materials, including reinforced concrete structures, pre-cast concrete box beams and composite decking materials. Old-style light poles and fixtures were used for the exterior lighting of a 120-vehicle parking lot and vintage boardwalk lighting along the lake.

BHB also provided a fire protection system for this single-story, 10,000 SF conference center, as well as a 1,000-gallon grease trap for the kitchen. Domestic hot water was circulated to each point of use. Approximately 40 tons of rooftop air conditioning units were designed and a total of six units were provided. Electric service for the facility utilized a pad mounted transformer with  underground electric service. Fluorescent lighting was utilized for the concourse, meeting rooms and restrooms. All lighting systems comply with energy codes. Power and data for each meeting room was provided for flexible adaptation of conference venues. A fire detection and alarm system was included.
