Project info

The University of Victoria (UVic) is expanding in size and capacity with the addition of the National Centre for Indigenous Laws (NCIL). The NCIL will house the Indigenous Law Degree program and provide a space for the learning and practice of Indigenous Laws. Launched in 2018, the Indigenous Law Degree program is the first of its kind in the world. As demand for the program continues to grow, UVic has decided to amplify its current Fraser Building to house the new NCIL.

The NCIL is being built with sustainable design in mind. In consultation with local Indigenous communities, cultural and ceremonial processes will be observed.

To help bring this project to life, we have been involved in multiple phases of construction. These include the NCIL Duct Bank and Foundations, Fraser Building Renewals, Fraser Building Heat Plant and Unit Sub, and finally construction of the new NCIL Building.
