Backcountry lodge gets new owners

A group from the Roaring Fork Valley has purchased the Electric Mountain Lodge off McClure Pass and it will be open to the public and for members within a month, according to a statement

The purchase was a collaborative project spearheaded by Sean Gooding and Dr. Dave Jensen.

The backcountry lodge, which is located on McClure Pass just above Paonia, has been renovated back to its nostalgic roots.

Current plans are for the hunting lodge to be open for the season and then special events throughout the year.

Aspen firm back on excellence list

Aspen-based Rowland+Broughton Architecture and Design has been named to the Professional Services Management Journal’s 2018 Circle of Excellence for the eighth time.

The listing recognizes successfully managed architecture and engineering firms that demonstrate outstanding achievements in areas such as profitability, overhead management, cash flow, productivity, business development, staff growth and turnover, according to a statement.

According to Jill Stoodley, managing editor of A/E/C Industry Surveys, less than 2 percent of the more than 350 firms participating in the survey this year have made the Circle of Excellence for more than eight years. “It’s very rare,” she said.

The firm will be honored in October at an event in San Diego.
