THE SAGAMORE: Hospitality Automation Consultants Ltd. is pleased to announce the completion of our 1,400th project, the automation of the world famous, 5 Star, 5 Diamond destination resort, THE SAGAMORE. The Sagamore is unique in that it occupies an entire island in the middle of Lake George, NY, and is registered as a national historic landmark, as it was initially built in the 1890s.
The property encompasses over 70 acres in the beautiful Adirondack Mountains. In addition, the resort has a world class golf course designed by Donald Ross that is over two miles away on the mainland, spanning several state highways, and much private land. Since the course is an integral part of the hotel, the need for both voice and data communications is extrememly vital. However, since we faced a two mile distance from the switch to the clubhouse, conventional methods of connecting the two sites was out of the question. The previous method of communications between the hotel was extremely costly and slow. Futher complications included the New York State parks commission which mandates the region as a "no build, no change" zone. Therefore, we could not disturb any of the existing landscape. The property also has an extremely high water table, which made trenching extremely costly.
HACL was responsible for rebuilding the entire communications backbone of the property, specifying the most advanced fiber optics network. Further, a new state of the art PBX was specifically designed, in a nodal configuration to handle the voice and data traffic of this year-round resort.
Perhaps most importantly of all, the project was completed on time, UNDER BUDGET, without any disruption of service to any guest, and without breaking any State Park rules. To view The Sagamore just click on this link.
