Work will include: asbestos removal; complete gutting of service cores and mechanical systems; re-design of the core areas and washrooms; installation of new energy efficient mechanical systems; construction of a new basement parking structure and ramp; and construction of a new energy efficient building envelope.
The project will be developed in a wilderness site on Lake Mistissini. The campus will consist of the two service centres, service buildings, the main training facility and waterfront facilities. Construction is scheduled for 2011.
An important goal of the project is to build upon traditional Cree construction and patterns of social interaction – and this priority has lead to development of an open social and teaching environment that reflects the traditional winter structures of the Cree (the Mitogan).
