Porcupine and Meridian Cabin Design and Construction, Chugach National Forest, Alaska

October 13, 2023

The National Forest Foundation (NFF), in partnership with the U.S. Forest Service (USFS), is seeking design and construction services for two new public use cabins on the Chugach National Forest. One cabin will be within the Porcupine Campground near Hope, AK and the other in the vicinity of Meridian Lake near Seward, AK. This is a design build project that involves a qualified designer and contractor to design a USFS-approved cabin, foundation, and site layout design to be used for construction of both or one cabin and site. Construction should be complete no later than September 30, 2024.

These cabins are the first of approximately 12 cabins to be built on the Chugach National Forest and 13 cabins on the Tongass National Forest in the coming years. Many cabins will be in remote or semi-remote locations, and all cabins are located in bear country. Through these cabin projects, the intent is to bolster local Alaskan economies by utilizing local (Alaskan) wood products, local contractors, and support opportunities for local workforce development, to the extent feasible.

Interested parties may submit a proposal for both cabins or for a single cabin.


Responses should be emailed by October 13, 2023.
