uaa beatrice mcdonald hall renewal

May 2013, Lake View General Contracting was awarded the UAA Beatrice McDonald Hall Renewal project. The team had to overcome several early permitting obstacles, which ultimately put the anticipated project schedule back several months. Lake View General Contracting worked quickly to make up for lost time, completing the 25,000 square foot interior remodel before classes started in January. Within the time frame of the original project, Lake View General Contracting also completed a large change order, adding fresh landscaping to the surrounding ground and painting the exterior of the building. Between the Owner and the Architects, significant design changes were established throughout the project. Lake View General Contracting worked readily with both parties to address and overcome these alterations.

Alaska Native Heritage Center

 In February of 2009, Lake View General Contracting was hired by the Alaska Native Heritage Center to assist them with developing an Athabascan Ceremonial House on their Heritage Center Campus. 

This new facility will serve primarily as a historical example of a ceremonial house found at an archaeological site in the Spirit Lake area on the Kenai Peninsula.  During the summer when the Heritage center is open to the public, it will be a part of their outdoor museum exhibits that introduce visitors to traditional native ways of life.

The 2,720 square foot building will be a log structure with traditional features found in early Athabascan structures including a roof system designed to accommodate regional native grasses.  The interior will be composed of a gathering/meeting space, warming kitchen, restrooms, dressing area for performances and utility spaces.  Utilizing the Design-Build delivery method, the project team is Lake View General Contracting and ECI/Hyer Architects.  The design-build team of Lake View and ECI/Hyer was formed in the very early stages of the project so that the teams’ collective knowledge and abilities could be leveraged to maximum advantage to help the project stay within its limited budget.  Cost saving ideas and value engineering efforts have been a constant metric throughout the planning and design of the project.  Construction started in the spring of 2010 once the logs harvested from the Nenana region had dried sufficiently.
