About the Project
Developed by the Greater Victoria Housing Society and funded by BC Housing, the six-storey wood frame building comprises 5,880 m2 (63,292 ft2) of gross liveable area over two stories of underground parking. The building accommodates a range of unit sizes - 50 studios, 39 one-bedrooms, one two-bedroom, and 12 three-bedrooms. The six-storey wood frame structure was selected for its flexibility, efficiency and affordability.
The project will:
- Document the project from beginning to end to better understand and share the benefits of Lean construction and the Last Planner® system as a method to achieve quality performance and reliability.
- Report on the outcomes and opportunities for further research in advancing high performance buildings using modern methods of construction.
- Identify, assemble, analyze and present relevant Integrated Project Delivery (IPD) case study projects for their applicability to affordable multi-family housing projects in BC.
