TKDA won a prestigious competition to design the Resource Management Building for the Fond du Lac Band of Lake Superior Chippewa in Cloquet. The new facility houses offices, laboratories and support operations, and provides office space for approximately 60 employees within 10 resource departments. The building includes secure, bullet-proof space for Court Administration, with a courtroom, judge’s chambers, and offices for attorneys. The project incorporates aggressive energy conservation through design strategies such as on-site water retention ponds and rain garden; high efficiency, low-flow water fixtures; daylighting and the use of regional materials. A roof garden diverts water to mitigate erosion and native plants grow on trellises to provide natural shading.
