The first staff house is now occupied!
January 2020 will remain a very significant month for Isuarsivik, but especially for its employees. Last month, four team members received keys to access their new home fully furnished by the organization. Two of them got a two-bedroom apartment and the other two a one-bedroom. All units come with a shed next door two of which were built by local construction trainees from the Sanajiit Project.
There is a lot of work behind the scenes for a community-based organization to have set out the needs for a staff house and see it to completion. But the work is not done since two additional fourplexes are confirmed from the funding agreement for the new Centre. Isuarsivik will be launching the call for tenders for the remaining eight lodging units before the end of February.
This accomplishment was made possible by our volunteer Board members, Kautaq Construction, EVOQ Architecture, Bouthillette Parizeau, NCK and SNC-Lavalin who have been great allies since the beginning in the realization of this project.
