Copper River Native Association – Robert Marshall Building

The Robert Marshall Building is the clinical and administrative headquarters for the Copper River Native Association, a non-profit health organization serving the Ahtna region including the Copper River Basin and outlying villages as far as Cantwell.  The 31,000 square-foot building houses CRNA’s administrative, tribal services, primary care, dental, pharmacy, health education and wellness programs.  An Indian Health Service Joint Venture Construction Program, the Robert Marshall Building was awarded LEED Silver certification by utilizing sustainable products, best management practices, and energy efficient systems.  The site for the building is a reclaimed gravel pit off the Richardson Highway.  Stones recovered on site are used in column pilasters and landscaping.  Material and color selections draw upon local, indigenous resources and the cultural heritage of the Ahtna people.
