Wanapum Heritage Center

Wanapum Heritage Center

This building serves as the administration and archival wing for the Wanapum Heritage Center.

More than 60 years in the making, the Wanapum and the Grant County Public Utility District joined to bring a culture to life and generations together. A traditionally built heritage center kept its profile down to follow the flow of the mountainous landscape along the Columbia River without standing out. PMSI installed 18 modules seamlessly joining that traditionally built center to house the museum’s offices, conference room, recording studio, archival library, restrooms and full kitchen for the employees and the culture’s history. Within the modular building, the natives are able to look out to the incredible view along the river knowing the building they work in to maintain their heritage does not take away from the land they hope to honor. The skylights also allow the employees to keep the lights off throughout daylight hours if they choose.

By nature, storage containers are subject to harsh conditions and weather, along with wear and tear during transport and handling. The longer the container has been in use, the more its grade is affected. A container grade is primarily based on looks and structure to determine a grade that rates its overall usability, functionality, and quality.
