Welcome to NAWIC Alaska!

Construction in Alaska is unique. Extreme weather conditions and remote locations provide logistical challenges. A lack of infrastructure (roads) means supplies may have to be barged or air-freighted to the construction site, weather delays can have a severe impact on the project. Freeze-up may come early or a storm sets in; the barge won’t make it in at all or on time.

The fog rolls in; the flight can’t land for days. There is no store for hundreds of miles. Mobilization of personnel to and from the site may consist of air and marine travel. The camp could be located in the middle of “bear country” with lodging being a platform tent.

These are the challenges the members of NAWIC Chapter #197 embrace. The satisfaction of working for designers, contractors and suppliers that complete projects under these circumstances is exhilarating.
