Barrow Replacement Hospital 

Project Barrow Replacement Hospital, $84.7M
Period December 2009 – December 2012
Role/Method UIC/ASKW Joint Venture Partnership
Owner/Rep Arctic Slope Native Association
A/E Team RIM Architects

ASKW teamed with UIC Construction in a joint venture agreement to manage this new hospital construction for the Arctic Slope Native Association. The project lasted over 3 years, including continued operations during wintertime periods, which involved sequencing temperature-sensitive work scopes.  The JV team worked with the Owner’s representative to maintain daily communications and consistent coordination. As a non-managing partner, we supported UICC throughout construction with administrative services and mechanical, electrical and plumbing (MEP) trades coordination.

The use of thousands of local labor hours covering all work scopes created a win-win scenario for ASNA and community. The practice generated employment for residents as well as pride of ownership throughout the region that increased interest and support for the facility.  


The Barrow Replacement Hospital is an approximately 100,000-square-foot, two-story hospital, rated for I2 occupancy with 8 patient rooms, exam rooms, a pharmacy, dental and vision facilities,  LDRP rooms, a laboratory, and physical therapy abilities. The building itself is a Type 1B fully-sprinkled construction with a lower level utility crawl space, and the structure will be elevated a minimum of three feet off the ground to accommodate snow blow-through. The steel-framed structure was built on a steel pile foundation system.
