UNIVERSITY OF VICTORIA STUDENT RESIDENCES

Victoria, BC Canada

A NEW SUSTAINABLE GOAL FOR A NEW GENERATION

With a dynamic and sustainable plan to elevate social living and student engagement, this new residence targets LEED Gold and Passive House certification, which will be a first for the University of Victoria.

DEDICATED SUPPORT THROUGHOUT THE DESIGN AND CONSTRUCTION PHASES

While the two-building, 320,000-square-foot development is predominantly cast-in-place concrete, Kalesnikoff was selected to provide the fabrication and installation support of a large exposed mass timber dining hall.

A COLLABORATIVE APPROACH

True to our collaborative and supportive processes, we worked closely with the engineers and architects throughout the pre-construction phase to accommodate updates to the mechanical and structural drawings.

A SEAMLESS FINISH

We also modified the design of the CLT panels from Spruce to Douglas Fir, to match the Glulam beams for a seamless finish throughout the structure.
