Office Renovation

During the summer and fall of 2019, the WRRB office underwent renovations to not only replace the carpet and paint the walls, but to take over the space behind the office allowing for an attached boardroom. The design for the new space was drawn up by Henry Design Build Live, with the plans finalized in late spring. The wall between the current office and the space behind was taken down in early July kicking off the renovations. Renovations were conducted by Capital City Construction Ltd. A meeting room or ‘quiet room’ was built in the space behind to allow for conference calls and small meetings to be conducted without disrupting other staff, a catering space was built for board meeting use, and new carpet was installed throughout. The WRRB installed a new tv and computer for board meetings, as well as a table and chairs for the interpreters, and a new boardroom table for Board members. The wall between the office and boardroom was replaced by a glass wall and door with frosting done by Canarctic Graphics. The final touches were the addition of a larger map with all place names in Tłı̨chǫ for the main office area, graciously printed for us by the Tłı̨chǫ Government and laminated by KopyKat, and a beautiful array of photos by Angela Gzowski Photography, that were framed by Visual Effects, and are now hanging in our new boardroom space. The staff are very excited about the changes (and even happier the renovations are over) and invite you to come by and see the changes and learn a bit more about what we do in Wek'èezhìı.
