A collaborative effort from Stack Modular and Bird Construction brought the wholly Inuit-owned development of a permanent modular hotel. Recognized with a first-place award from the Modular Building Insitute for "Permanent Modular Hotel Over 10,000 sq.ft.," the full-service energy-efficient hotel is complete with 94 rooms.
Off-site modular construction significantly reduced the build cost and total schedule by mitigating weather delays. The steel frame, the internal fixtures, and most other components of the build were pre-fabricated in the Canadian-owned advanced manufacturing facilities. On-site, the hotel was completely assembled in nine days and designed with the same high-quality and up-to-code materials as traditionally constructed buildings.
With the help from local community engagement, the hotel is complete with a conference center, lounge, restaurant, gym, spa, and commercial space.
