The new Redford Conference Center is the latest fulfillment of Robert Redford’s vision for Sundance Resort: a place that integrates artistic expression, environmental responsibility and successful commerce, a place for personal and social transformation. The environmentally friendly building provides nearly 3500 square feet of meeting space featuring reception areas that wrap the building and transition the outdoors with the interiors, a large fireplace, and design elements that are consistent with the Sundance style of rustic elegance and offer all the amenities and comforts that are desired by both meeting and social event planners. The opening of the Redford Conference Center is coincidental to the final stages of a multi-million dollar lodging room renovation that will make the resort even more desirable for retreats, conferences and weddings. “This conference center will foster more people into collaborative ventures, more new ideas to flow, and more creativity to thrive on the mountain, all without overwhelming the natural space it inhabits,” said Sundance founder Robert Redford. “I couldn’t be happier about its completion or more excited about what the future will bring here at the Redford Conference Center.” Set amidst a grove of spruce and pine, nestled beside a wandering mountain stream with Mt. Timpanogos soaring above it, the Redford Conference Center offers an intimate meeting and event space with a matchless outdoor experience. Hand placed stone hearths, reclaimed barnwood, geothermal heating and cooling, and a lawn that is ideal for events makes the Redford Conference Center a truly remarkable space, a unique place that is a welcome alternative to more typical commercially franchised product. Great care was given to making the new building environmentally friendly. The geothermal heating and cooling, which allows the building to be heated in winter by pulling heat from the ground deep below the building and supplementing that heat to bring it to the desired temperature; in summer, heat from the building is dispersed deep in the ground, allowing for efficient cooling.
