015 Grand Canyon_ Supai Camp Housing Rehabilitation

Project: Repair and Rehabilitate Housing at Supai Camp.


Project overview: This project involves the construction of six new housing units at Supai Camp, an area near Grand Canyon Village on the South Rim of the Grand Canyon that has been utilized by members of the Havasupai Tribe since the 1930s. The Camp is home to approximately 10 to 20 people. The six new housing units will replace six existing housing units that are in substandard condition. The existing condition of current housing includes no indoor plumbing (sewer and water), lead based paint on windows, lack of proper insulation, drafty windows and doors, missing siding, leaking roofs, very small size (~350 square feet per unit) and no sprinkler systems. The new units shall meet all current building codes and standards. This project will provide adequate housing units for members of the Havasupai Tribe currently living at Supai Camp.
