Our work at Dalhousie University spans a decade and includes research, Master planning, renovations and teaching labs. Over the years we have completed several projects, at various scales, across several of Dalhousie’s faculties.

Our multi-phased renovation of Dalhousie’s Schulich School of Law teaching labs and addition of a moot court included challenges like adapting a constrained structural and spatial environment to provide significantly increased ventilation and acoustic control and absorption. The project included extensive asbestos remediation while the facility remained operational, and strategic phasing to be ready for use at the beginning of the school year.

Nycum has also produced the Master Plan for Dalhousie’s Faculty of Medicine, where we continue to provide renovations and upgrades to the existing facilities.

In 2012, we completed the renovation of a merchant townhouse to create a research laboratory, data collection centre and testing site for the Canadian Longitudinal Study on Aging that will study the health of 50,000 Canadians through a 20-year long-range study.
