Kee Tas Kee Now Tribal Council (KTC) is compromised of five member Nations in Alberta. The organization was formed in 1995 to facilitate joint action by the member Nations on matters of mutual concern. Some of those areas include Education and Child & Family Services. KTC staff were working in multiple locations, and leadership had a vision to bring everyone together under one roof.
It was decided that the Loon River First Nation’s newly developed commercial park would be home to the KTC Administration Building. A project management team was formed, and 3twenty was involved to lead the design of the new building. Through extensive consultation with the team and stakeholders, 3twenty developed a floorplan and design that satisfied the organization’s requirements. Additional architectural input was brought from other stakeholders, including for example the use of a Timber Frame entrance.
Loon River First Nation’s community-owned construction company took the lead in the entire civil scope of the project and in preparing the site for the development. 3twenty delivered the building and conducted all tie-ins in an incredibly cold winter season.
Building was designed to accommodate future expansion with all structural, mechanical, and electrical elements considered
Integrated a common reception area for all departments, with special features to ensure security and confidentiality of operations
“3twenty was an active and key participant in the planning stages of the project. Their construction knowledge lead to savings in time and cost. During construction, 3twenty worked closely and cooperatively with Loon River First Nation consulting engineers, other suppliers, subcontractors and First Nations staff to keep the project on time and budget.” - Peter Moore, Project Manager
