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.

Stack Modular and Bird Construction Complete their Inuit-Owned Hotel
1. Permanent Modular Buildings - Permanent modular buildings have the potential to reduce build cost and total schedule by mitigating weather delays.
2. Off-site Modular Construction - Off-site modular construction allows for the pre-fabrication of building components, leading to faster on-site assembly and reduced costs.
3. Energy-efficient Hotels - Energy-efficient hotels are becoming a trend in sustainable hospitality, offering long-term savings and reduced environmental impact.
1. Hotel & Hospitality - The hotel industry can benefit from modular construction as it provides cost-effective and sustainable building options.
2. Construction - The construction industry can take advantage of modular construction for faster builds, reduced costs, and increased efficiency.
3. Manufacturing - Off-site modular construction requires advanced manufacturing facilities, presenting opportunities for the manufacturing industry to partner with construction companies.
