Macassa Lodge is getting a new kitchen.

The 390-square-metre addition is part of a $4.2-million project that includes upgrading 11 food serving areas and a new backup generator.

“The current kitchen hasn’t been renovated since the ’80s,” said administrator Vicki Woodcox.

It will be built next to the existing one, which will mean “business as usual” for food preparation during construction, she said.

It was more cost-effective to build in a new area than retrofit the current kitchen and use a trailer to prepare food during construction, she said.

Woodcox said it is hoped the bulk of construction will be completed by the end of the year.

The current kitchen area will be converted to an area that can be used for other programming.
