Dauphin River First Nation New Community School

About the project

This new 10,549 square foot school for Dauphin River First Nation has capacity for 63 students (grades K-8) and houses six classrooms, lunchroom, gym and multi-purpose room, kitchen, special education and resource room and administration offices. A playground with baseball diamond, soccer field, landscaping and bus area completed the project. This project was jointly funded with the Government of Canada and Government of Manitoba.

The site came with challenges, including grading and groundwater issues. By working with Dauphin River First Nation, CPI was able to bring in the vast amounts of clean fill to bring the land up to grade to keep the project on time and budget. The remoteness of the project site saw CPI set-up and maintain a camp for crews to stay for the duration of the project, which mitigated delays as travel ability and time was greatly reduced. Dauphin River First Nation residents were hired to run the camp.
