Indian and Inuit Affairs, Whitehorse, Yukon - 1984
Client: Indian and Northern Affairs Canada
Building type: Offices
Accommodation for the Yukon Regional Office was crowded, with poor environmental conditions. In addition, the federal agency was divided between two buildings. We assessed the current operations and identified problem areas; determined future office requirements; identified the options available; and selected the preferred accommodation strategy. We worked with management and staff to define the preferred spatial relationships among the work groups and to develop an accommodation schedule that met the functional requirements within government standards. We concluded the most appropriate solution was to lease the total requirement of approximately 1200 square metres, thereby allowing the organization to be housed in a single location. Completed in 1984.
