In support of our mission, we provide design services in 90+ Alaska communities.
Bettisworth North has provided design services for projects in all distinct environmental regions of the state. Each region, including the maritime regions of southwest and southeast Alaska, the coastal arctic, and the interior, requires a unique design approach tailored to that environment. Bettisworth North knows and understands the complexities of providing design services in rural Alaska. We know that lead times, barge schedules, aircraft loading capacity, and short building seasons inform key design decisions in remote locations. We have successfully addressed the design challenges associated with harsh environmental conditions in Interior Alaska, including designing efficient buildings for 140-degree temperature shifts from winter to summer. In addition, we understand that material selection as well as mechanical and electrical design must consider the difficulties of maintenance and repair.
