A Safe Environment Means a Fresh Start for Many People

Using modular construction as a viable alternative to address the lack of affordable housing, BC Housing and Raincity Housing Society will be able to open the doors sooner to this new facility in Chilliwack, BC. The 44-unit supportive housing facility provides a safe, quality home for people at risk in the community so they can have a fresh start, and focus on rebuilding their lives instead of just surviving on the streets.

This facility was completed with 33, 12’x64’ modules built off-site at Metric’s manufacturing facility in Agassiz, transported to and installed on-site where the final connections will be done.

The tenants will share a kitchen, dining space, and medical room, but each individual will have their own private unit – a self-contained unit with their own living space, kitchen and private bathroom.

The modules were built using BC wood; and were designed to meet BC Energy Code Step 3 – the provinces’ new construction standard implemented last year to ensure new building achieve energy efficiency requirements.

This project was by BC Housing as well as with support from City of Chilliwack to purchase the land with funds reserved for Chilliwack’s first Housing First project.
