Merrick Architecture was chosen by the Klahoose community to design its new multi-purpose centre in Squirrel Cove, Cortes Island, BC. Its multi-use design incorporates everything from a health wing and fitness centre to a language lab, kitchen facilities, and a 300-person “Great Room”. This impressive 15,000 sq.ft. building was entirely self-financed by the Klahoose Nation.
The AME Group designed condensing boilers to be set up with air source heat pumps. With sustainability a key focus, AME utilized natural ventilation to provide improved indoor air quality which lends to a healthy space for the Klahoose community and improved level of functionality during the frequent and extended power outages that occur on the island.
