Multipurpose Gym & Daycare

Mission Island Community Centre is a recreational project in Norway House Cree Nation, Manitoba. The building features a modular design made up of 13 shipping containers with a fabric building cover. The open floor plan layout offers a full recreational experience and multipurpose use.

The daycare fulfills another youth community need, while the main gymnasium area can also be used for other community events like markets, concerts, and gatherings. The design of the community centre is a never-before-seen building solution for northern Manitoba, and an environmental option with cost-effective benefits.

Bison Modular Homes and their sister companies completed all prefabrication with building components off-site and on-site at the same time.

The organization’s division combined their resources — including the fabric building installation, mechanical services, and project management. Local tradespeople also contributed to the construction, completing excavator work and general labour.
