Vernon Supportive Housing
RHA worked with the Turning Points Society of Vernon and BC Housing to develop 54 units of housing and amenity spaces for those who are homeless or at risk of homelessness. This building uses wood frame modular construction. Prioritizing sustainability in design, this building achieved STEP level 3.
In coordination with the manufacturer, we have collaborated to deliver a design that meets the needs of future residents first and foremost, the interests of the city’s development staff for a building fronting a major thoroughfare, and, by coordinating early and often with the construction team, a project that was costed and scheduled with enough certainty to propel the proposed facility through funding authorization.
