The Challenge

The Norway House Cree Nation Health Centre of Excellence Professional Accommodations Building project was constructed by JNR Construction, a joint venture between the Norway House Cree Nation and Sigfusson Northern Ltd.

Our Solution

Construction of this new 29,569 square-foot, two-storey apartment building consisted of civil services, stormwater management, driven steel H-pile foundation, engineered wood truss framing, energy-efficient building envelope, fibre-cement siding and triple-pane fiberglass windows, gypsum cement underlayment, architectural woodwork, sustainable interior finishes, two-stage hydraulic elevator, electrical, mechanical, fire protection and security systems. Additional building features include one-, two- and three-bedroom suites, accessible amenities, exterior pergola, fitness centre, yoga studio, laundry facility and lounge. The utilization of local resources have ensured the project’s target of 3 Green Globes Certification is achieved which will minimize environmental impacts, reduce operating cost and optimize occupant comfort.
