Surrey Supportive Housing

This 61-unit supportive housing project in Surrey, BC, is part concrete construction and part permanent wood frame modular construction. The initial concept called for a 40-unit, four-storey structure in keeping with the applicable BC Housing program. An analysis by RHA for this compact site led us to advocate for a hybrid construction method of a first floor concrete structure supporting five storeys of modular wood frame construction. The concrete structure at the base has also proven key to maintaining generous common spaces for residents, both indoor and out, and an accelerated and simplified construction process. The total time for the delivery of this project from accepting the brief to occupation was 1.5 years.
