Greek Peak ski resort opens year-round water park

Cascades Indoor Water Park opened in December in Cortland County, N.Y., bringing something new to Central New York – year-round water fun, without the ice. At a ski resort.

And we’re pleased not only with the quality of our work, but with what our work made possible.

Fortress Fusion provided most of the exterior for the all-steel building, and some of the interior metal pieces. It looks good, sure, and it will last for generations, but we suspect the facility was able to open in December specifically because of the choice to go with powder coat instead of paint.

Upstate New York has a short construction season – maybe four months. And the 2009 season was shortened incredibly because of a record number of rainy days.

You can’t paint an exterior building on a rainy day. And even after the rain stops, you have to wait for the surfaces to dry.

But with powder coating, we prepared each piece in our own indoor facility. We can do that rain or shine, day or night.

And once they were ready, we shipped them to Cortland County, where they could be assembled immediately in any condition short of a lightning storm.
They didn’t have to wait for us, that’s for sure.
