Project: Ragged Mountain



Ragged Mountain

Location: Danbury, New Hampshire

Sherwood worked closely with the new owner of Ragged Mountain on this ski resort and proposed 800-unit development. Our engineering work focused on developing a road network and building, master plan that protects the sensitive wetlands on site and maximizes preserved open space. We provided strategic direction on the project through the preparation of a far-reaching sustainability strategy including innovative stormwater management, site-wide water accounting and habitat protection solutions. Drawing on our experience in wastewater treatment, we recommended the use of an unique treatment system, which the project used to pursue one of the nation’s first indirect uses of reclaimed water for snow making. Working with challenging terrain, Sherwood designed a low impact road network including collaborating with local officials to create a customized set of design guidelines that enabled further impact reductions.
