Construction on the Durham Modular Supportive Housing project has begun and is progressing quickly. This video captures the innovative modular construction process in action.
This exciting project will provide much-needed housing and social service supports to those experiencing homelessness in the rural community of Beaverton, Ontario. The three-storey residence will contain 47 studio apartments along with associated lounges, amenities, and administrative areas, including a two-storey community hub accommodating dining, meeting, and social support rooms.
The building utilizes modular construction to achieve design excellence while meeting strict budget, schedule, and operational parameters, which allows for superior quality control, accelerated construction timelines, and a reduction in its overall carbon footprint. As well, the building does not use any fossil fuels, and is powered instead by 300 photovoltaic panels incorporated into the design of the roof.
