Construction Projects

Najuqsivik has organized 4 major construction projects in the community. All of the projects involved students from Nuiyak School, giving them valuable hands-on experience in the trades.

Three of the projects were supervised by teacher / journeyman carpenter Brian Furgal. Leon Martin is the 2006-2007 instructor. The students supplied all the labour except the electrical and furnace installation.

In 2000 - 2001 students from Nuiyak School built an addition onto the existing daycare building. This addition is now the site of a custom frame shop and the local community television station.

In 2004 - 2005, Najuqsivik partnered with Qammaq Housing Association to build a house for the association. View more information.

In 2005 - 2006, Najuqsivik's construction project (funded by the Kakivak Association) was a new Infant Centre for the community. View more information.

The present project, conceived by Art Lebsack, Housing Association supervisor, involves renovating 2 existing houses and adding a unit onto each of them, creating 2 duplexes.
