“We work with real artifacts and protecting them is a real art."
Advantage GRP is the indigenous team behind the restoration of some of Canada's most historic sites including this old fur trading post. Kihciwâskâhikan (“the great house") or York Factory is also Canada's oldest structure built on permafrost.
An honour to weave together the historical context of this structure and how the team strategized to bring it back to life.
Read about what it was like to work in one of the only areas where polar, grizzly and black bears interact, the science of drying paint in frigid temperatures and why the team considers York Factory a "living museum piece."

Some days I get discouraged because I’m unable to be out and about like I wish to be. This morning while driving to work in a chilly car I could see the Sierra Nevada range in the distance and wished I were there, hiking the mountainsides and taking in the views. Photos like this take me back to good places in time; and I know great ones are still just around the corner, too. Here’s to another day of hustling to make the dreams happen 🤙
