Complex, detailed and designed to be a lasting part of the community. Those were just a few of the challenges facing the Metric Modular team working on the Lil’tem’ Mountain Hotel near Seton Lake. The rugged, remote location, limited access and large number of switchback roads meant we had to find some very unique and innovative ways of getting modular units delivered there.
Metric Modular designed, supplied, delivered and installed all the modular pieces for this project. To ease transport, the Britco Construction design team used shorter modular units that worked better while traversing tight turns and tunnels. The rooms were designed for long-term stays and the roof lines blend with the rugged mountain environment.
With the inclusion of a cultural centre in the main lobby, the First Nations group that commissioned this project was pleased to have a place they could designate as being part of a legacy for the community instead of a camp for staff. The resort has grown in popularity and profile. There is an RV park nearby and, with the close proximity to nearby walking trails and coffee shops, it’s turned into a tourist attraction for visitors and a meeting place for local residents.
