CONAM and native partner Tikigaq completed individual projects that provided buildings for warm storage and maintenance of light and heavy equipment at various North Slope villages.  Building design consisted of pre-engineered metal buildings placed on gravel pads with concrete foundations and floor slab.  Features included bay drain pits, HVAC, bay dividers, insulation board heat barrier and a thermosyphon system.

Transportation varied by site and by material being transported; both barging and air transport were used. In Atqasuk, it was also necessary to fly in the concrete aggregate.
