Montgomery Sisam Architects are proud to announce that the Durham Modular Supportive Housing project, designed in collaboration with NRB Modular Housing Solutions for the Regional Municipality of Durham, has been awarded a 2022 Gold WAN Award in the Future Projects – Residential category.
The Durham Modular Supportive Housing 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. The Gold WAN Award recipient demonstrates that everyone in society should and can have access to an engaging, sustainable, and accessible place to call home.
