In the challenging landscape of the Canadian Arctic, Natik Projects (2007) Inc. has played a pivotal role in shaping the infrastructure of Nunavut and Northwest Territories, earning a distinguished reputation for its commitment to safety, sustainability, and quality workmanship.

Founded over 30 years ago, Natik started with a vision and a mission to become a complete Mechanical Systems Contractor actively contributing to the development of Nunavut. “Natik not only holds a strong safety, production, and quality culture, but is a strong believer in Safe Production,” Vince Bruno, Owner and Operations Manager, tells Business Elite Canada. “This allows us to stand out as a Mechanical Contractor due to our high standards for being and maintaining efficient and effective construction execution.”

Specializing in heating, plumbing, HVAC, building control management, fire protection, and fuel systems, Natik caters to both public and private sectors, including the Government of Nunavut and Government of Northwest Territories. “Natik prides itself on being an important key asset in the construction process for supporting the infrastructure growth throughout Nunavut,” says Bruno.

Having been operational in the Canadian Arctic prior to the establishment of Nunavut as a province in 1999, Natik Projects has been an active participant in various major infrastructure projects across all 25 communities in Nunavut. Schools, hospitals, healing centers—Natik has left its mark on diverse projects, showcasing its adaptability and expertise over three decades.

Some of Natik’s ongoing and previous projects, including the Nunavut Recovery Center, Rankin Inlet New Airport, and Sakku School Renovation and Addition, exemplify Natik’s capabilities and its positive impact on communities in the Canadian Arctic. From integrating smart plumbing systems, to leveraging cutting-edge logistics technologies, Natik’s innovative spirit means more efficient and sustainable infrastructure for its clients.

Sustainable Development

Natik Projects takes its commitment to sustainable development seriously, implementing various initiatives to minimize environmental impact. From water conservation and energy efficiency to the use of sustainable materials and smart plumbing systems, the company actively promotes eco-friendly practices. “We believe in early and thorough project feasibility studies, ensuring Wildlife, Environment, and Cultural protection are the utmost priority in all new infrastructure in Nunavut,” says Bruno.

When asked why Natik Projects is the best choice for clients, partners, and successful project outcomes, Bruno points to the company’s decades of experience, expertise, and a team of skilled professionals. Quality workmanship, timely project completion, and customer satisfaction are highlighted as key pillars contributing to Natik’s success.

Natik’s approach integrates meticulous planning with a keen understanding of local regulations and culture. Natik works with Indigenous communities and incorporates traditional knowledge into its projects, creating projects that are not just compliant but also respectful of Arctic cultures and traditions.

“Successful quality and safe construction projects in Nunavut require a combination of careful planning, specialized knowledge, collaboration with local communities, and adaptability to the unique challenges posed by the northern climate and geography,” says Bruno. “Engaging in early and thorough project feasibility studies is crucial for addressing these challenges proactively is one of Natik’s top prioritizes in ensuring Wildlife, Environment, and Cultural protection is the upmost priority of all new infrastructure in Nunavut.”

The unique challenges presented by the Canadian Arctic, such as extreme weather conditions and limited access to remote locations, require innovative solutions. “Specialized equipment and construction materials designed for cold climates are essential,” says Bruno. “Workers need proper cold-weather gear, and heated workspaces may be necessary.” Additionally, meticulous project planning and coordination, utilizing local resources and alternative transportation methods, are crucial in overcoming logistical challenges.

Looking towards the future, Natik Projects aims to continue providing technical assistance and supporting the Canadian Arctic in its infrastructure needs. “The goal for Natik Projects is to continue providing high-quality mechanical services to support the Canadian Arctic in their crucial needs,” says Bruno. With a rich history, a diverse portfolio of successful projects, and a commitment to excellence, Natik Projects stands poised to play a key role in the evolving landscape of the region for years to come.
