Renovation to the Greenbrier Country Club Grille, Dining Rooms and Outdoor Dining

The Project : Member comfort and satisfaction is the prime mission of this exclusive private club. Edgewater Construction was chosen to complete selective demolition and the remodel of a portion of the existing dining room, bar, and porch areas at Greenbrier Country Club to bring an upscale refresh to the interiors.

Edgewater provided services that delivered new finishes (carpeting, wall and window treatments, and paint) to the existing bar lounge and dining area and a new wall to replace a dividing curtain separating two of three dining rooms.

A renovation of the second floor porch area overlooking the pools and golf course provides an additional attractive and casual outdoor dining space off the grille. This portion of the project required Edgewater to remove an aging canvas roof structure and replace it with new pergola structure that opens the space to allow members to enjoy the temperate climate of Coastal Virginia. An existing wood exit stair structure was removed and replaced with a metal staircase.

The Challenge : In order for the dining room to open for members and maintain its revenue making abilities, the renovations must be expedient.

Value Added : Edgewater fast tracked the Greenbrier County Club renovations to ensure impacts to members and revenues were minimized.
