Waskaganish Airport

Design of this structure, located near a Cree village in James Bay, was inspired by the tribe’s traditional symbols.
 
Building an air terminal in a northern community required the use of very energy-efficient measures, including an envelope with a very high insulation factor and high-performance glazing. The building’s aerodynamic shape was designed to cope effectively with strong winds and reduce snow build-up.
 
This air terminal, built entirely of wood, was based on sustainable development principles and designed to achieve silver LEED certification.
