Topping Out Ceremony Held for Expanded CAIR Building in Duluth

Projected to be a 15 Million Dollar Project When Complete

A  multi-million dollar expansion of The Center for American Indian Resources in Duluth was celebrated Tuesday. 

The final beam was placed in the Center for American Indian Resources Building, and people gathered for a Topping Out ceremony that was held to honor the progress of the project.  

But It’s only a mid-point for the construction of the building.

“That’s the finishing of the super structure of the new medical health and human service facility that we’re building here in Duluth,” said Chuck Walt, the Executive Director of The Fond Du Lac Band of Lake Superior Chippewa.

The expansion is projected to cost $15 million dollars once finished, and will provide an additional 30,000 square feet of space for services like medical, pharmacy, public health, and chemical dependency treatment for Native American Communities.

The building is expected to be completed by fall of this year.
