Project: BIA Office Complex

Celilo, OR

This project was an administration building complex for the Bureau of Indian Affairs. Traditional forms and aesthetics were utilized to compliment the cultural setting of the Celilo Falls area. The construction process was overseen by the Army Corps of Engineers.

The spatial make-up of the project consisted primarily of office, administration and support space with the exception of a large classroom/training area of 700 square feet.

Shed rooflines were incorporated to, both, address the natural environment and overall cost effectiveness. Other cost-saving measures were the inclusion of energy-efficient lighting fixtures, plumbing fixtures and windows. The use of heavy-timber, natural wood beams cap off the culturally sensitive project.

Project: Lone Pine Community Center

Lone Pine, CA

This project is a new construction Community Center to the Lone Pine Paiute-Shoshone Tribe in Lone Pine, California just south of Bishop, CA.

The project was funded by a HUD grant and accommodated a basic structure at a minimal cost. We were able to provide just over 10,000 square feet of facility at under $70 per square foot. The structure is a pre-fabricated steel building and is set on a concrete slab floor and foundation.

Additional spaces to the regulation-sized gym floor are adequate office space for a new full-time coordinator, public restrooms, and a full locker room facility- one for men and women along with ample support spaces. These locker facilities will include built-in bench seating, metal lockers and showers.
