TSK Architects is proud to announce the start of construction on the Winnemucca Indian Colony Community Center. The community center is the cornerstone to a larger project, including 12 new single-family homes as part of the first phase of development. This project is in conjunction with Walker River Construction and has a targeted completion date set for summer 2022.
“It is an incredible honor to be the architecture firm of record for this groundbreaking project for the Winnemucca Tribe,” said Pat Pusich, managing principal of TSK Architects. “This project is a significant community building for the Colony, and we are eager to see the members experience this place of gathering and celebration. This project will provide a collaborative space where members can recreate, meet, and build lasting family and community bonds. The Colony has undergone many hardships over the years, and this will be a chance to celebrate a needed soul and home for their community.
The building will serve the Colony by providing offices and facilities which will include a boardroom, Colony program offices, and an open flexible computer area that can be utilized as a teaching/learning lab for tribal members. Additionally, the center will include a community kitchen, restrooms, and storage area. These spaces are approximately 3,400 sq.ft., in combination with a 2,600 sq.ft. multipurpose room, which will provide a total communal space of 6,000 sq.ft. for the next generation of Winnemucca Indian Colony families.
TSK facilitated dialogue to ensure best values were reached and architectural design was maintained to ensure direct identification with the Colony. The project is Design/Build Delivery with the mechanical, plumbing, and electrical systems being delivered through Walker River Construction. This project is being developed with future growth of the Winnemucca Indian Colony expected in years to come.
