Cabela’s, The World’s Foremost Outfitter, chose to construct a 200,000 sf retail destination in Lacey, Washington. Hatton Godat Pantier was tasked with developing a site plan for the 1,200 stall parking lot on nearly 30 acres, obtaining land use approval for the facility, as well as full civil engineering construction permits and complete landscape and irrigation construction package. Landscape tasks included parking lot layout, planting and irrigation design for the entire site including entry drive, parking islands, site perimeter, I-5 frontage, building entry and elevations.
Hatton Godat Pantier provided LEED technical support to achieve LEED six months in order for the store to be open for the Christmas 2007 shopping season. Through many hours and a very cooperative and creative team including the City of Lacey, the impossible happened and the store opened on time.
