Nullagvik Hotel 

Customer Nana Management Services
Location Kotzebue, Alaska
Completed August 2011
Market Commercial

The new Nullagvik Hotel design integrated durable and low maintenance materials to improve energy efficiency in an arctic climate. The hotel received statewide recognition at its grand opening and it is projected to benefit area residents and visitors as the region’s premier hotel accommodation.

ASKW construction services included a site investigation and review, preparation and development of program requirements, a study of alternatives, rough order-of-magnitude cost estimations, and preparation of final conceptual plans. After initial estimates generated at 35% design, ASKW came on-board this $20-plus-million design-build project, overcame potential challenges and delivered a final price true to within 1% of original cost projections.

Architect and engineering firm WHPacific provided programming, conceptual designs and cost estimates for a combination of demolition, renovation, addition and new construction. The wood-framed structure was built on refrigerated steel piling with the main entrance resting on a slab-on-grade foundation. Its interior boasts over 60,000 square feet of usable space including 76 guest rooms, a restaurant and kitchen, meeting rooms, an exercise room, a laundry facility and a private manager’s apartment. Installations include industry-grade elevators and an advanced environmental control system to save energy costs during off-season months.
