Muskrat Dam First Nation Award

Muskrat Dam First Nation Award

April 24, 2019

Artspan would like to congratulate Muskrat Dam First Nation as the recipient of the Community Housing Recognition Award for 2019. The Northwestern Ontario community was tasked with the challenge of building two triplexes for their residents in 2017. With the remote location and cold climate this could have been a next to impossible project to complete on time and on budget. However, in only nine weeks, they were able to complete the venture using Artspan’s self-framing insulated metal panels.

Artspan’s panels are designed to move projects along quicker with one-pass construction, making them an ideal choice for Muskrat Dam’s build. Artspan’s panel’s have taken seven steps of traditional building methods and rolled them into one easy to install panel. These panels are not only a time saving method but are also optimal for Northern and remote communities providing a mold, fire and rodent resistant building envelope. These panels also boast an effective R value of 31.63, keeping you stay warm in the winter and cool in the summer.

The Artspan team was happy to be able to assist Muskrat Dam First Nation in completing the project and providing a comfortable housing solution for the local residents.
