“WELL” Built The Lakehouse at Sloans Lake

“All of the materials went through review and testing and the building has passed all of the inspections to date, putting it in a good position to receive Gold WELL Certification. This was the first project of its kind for GH Phipps, and we know that we’ve learned a lot and have gained a great deal of knowledge that we can apply to similar projects in the future.”
