Canadian High Arctic Research Station | Cambridge Bay

The most important research centre in Canada’s North

Project Description

This building, located in the Inuit community of Cambridge Bay, Nunavut, houses a work and research environment that brings together various disciplines in one location, such as a genomics laboratory, a necropsy laboratory, teaching rooms, and a multitude of meeting and conference rooms with videoconferencing. But also, which was a much appreciated aspect of this project, a portion of the building is reserved for production, culture and community activities, such as an interpretation centre, a large multi-purpose room equipped with a video projection and videoconferencing system, and a post-production studio serving citizens and the research centre.

Our implication

We have realized the scenic and technological infrastructures for the interpretation centre, the large multifunctional hall which is equipped with a video projection and videoconferencing system. As well as the post-production studio serving the public and the research centre. In collaboration with the team of professionals, we wanted to push back the limits of the original concept in order to integrate a multitude of technical services from various horizons such as audio and video post-production, museum facilities, simultaneous translation, institutional audio, videoconferencing and e-learning systems.

To optimize the delivery of the equipment and to anticipate protocol problems between them, all the equipment cabinets were assembled, put into operation and connected with multiconnectors in Toronto. The cabinets were then delivered as is and interconnected on site. This gave everyone the assurance that everything was fully functional once on site in the High Arctic.
