Montgomery Sisam to Design Modular Affordable Housing Targeting Passive House Certification

Montgomery Sisam Architects is thrilled to announce that we have been commissioned to design the 253 King William Street project, a new affordable rental housing development in downtown Hamilton. The three-strorey modular construction, developed in collaboration with NRB Modular Solutions for City Housing Hamilton, will accommodate 24 studio-style units and offer community rooms, meeting rooms and social spaces.

The building is targeting Passive House Certification, leveraging the factory-controlled setting of prefab construction to deliver a highly efficient building envelope. The design also features photovoltaic panels to support its fully electric heating and cooling systems. The project is a continuation of the firm’s ongoing commitment to providing high quality, integrated, and dignified affordable housing, combatting the stigma often associated with supportive housing that serves a low income demographic.

The project aims to meet the CHMC’s Rapid Housing Initiative funding timelines, with occupancy slated for Fall 2022.
