The University of Victoria Student Housing and Dining Project is a mixed-used facility designed and built to address the growing demands of on-campus housing, and the campus’ commitment to enhance the student experience with more socially-connected and walkable spaces. The project targets LEED Gold and will be the university’s first building with passive house certification. It achieves new sustainability goals and leverages innovative engineering solutions.
In addition to conference, academic and common spaces, and over 750 new beds for residences, the facility includes a new 600-seat dining hall. The dining hall's mass timber roof is supported by timber tree columns with fabricated steel branches and custom-designed cast steel nodal components.
