Royal Roads University

Victoria, BC • 2000, ongoing

This is a comprehensive development on a former Edwardian estate and Military College for a growing model university on a beautiful wooded, 145 acre leased waterfront site. A design charrette held in the summer of 2001 was part of the on-going Campus Planning Initiative of Royal Roads University. The planning concepts and guiding principles included maintaining and strengthening the integration of the campus functions with Hatley Park and respecting and enhancing the significance of this National Historic Site and Buildings. Also the incorporation of environmentally and fiscally sustainable strategies, technologies, methods and materials in all planning design and construction was key in addressing Smart Growth and Sustainable Development goals.
