NANA Development Corporation (NDC) provided the City of Kotzebue with hotel facility accommodations for guest rooms, meeting rooms, and a restaurant. The WHPacific design team was directed to work with NMS Lodging to develop a program and concepts for this hotel. NMS Lodging set the design direction and quality based on a Marriott model. WHPacific led the design team in the design and construction of this new 78 room, 52,459 SF hotel for NDC, accommodating guest rooms, meeting rooms, and a restaurant. This project provided a fully accessible, large facility in Arctic Alaska. Additionally, the hotel responded to the unique Native cultural requirements. Finally, the hotel was constructed as a design-assist/design-build and demonstrates WHPacific’s ability to respond to our client’s direction to commence construction at the 60% design point.
