Description
New k-12 school in remote community.

Award Winning design by Smith Carter Architects. The school structure was build entirely of beautiful glulam beams. There was a large content of local labour involved in the construction. All materials for construction were trucked into the community via two seasons of winter roads as community is only accessible by air.

Serviceing the site via air or winter road made planning the timely arrival of key components very critical. Project milestones were maintained due to the committed effort by PPL employees, local tradespeople and their resources. Having a remote project of this scale move through two season cycles made the logistics for the project very complex.
