Accutech Engineering Inc. has been retained as the Prime Consult and Engineering Firm to complete design and construction administration services for a new 1792m2 Health Centre located in Cape Dorset, Nunavut. The design for the new Cape Dorset Health Centre features Clinical and Treatment Spaces including an Emergency Room, Ambulance Garage, X-Ray Suite, Dental Suite, Airborne Isolation Ward, Clinical Spaces, and an Employee Wellness. In addition to providing continuous Health Care to residents of Cape Dorset, the Health Centre is also designed to host Specialist Services for dental and eyecare. Incorporating traditional artwork, knowledge, and themes is a major influence in the design of the Cape Dorset Health Centre. The profile of the building responds to the deflection of winter wind and the site contours. The use of colour on the exterior and interior will respond to the rich colours of local art and clothing, and the dynamic hues of the sky at dawn, dusk and night. The exterior lines will respond to the horizontal patterns of the land and horizon with the verticality of the surrounding hills and topography. The building will be viewed from 360°, all sides and the top of the building will be visible from various parts of the community. Large curtain-wall glazing and vaulted ceilings in the entrance space provide staff and users with a view of the Community and surrounding landscapes.
