NOW Housing provides modular housing solutions benefiting budget conscious consumers. Quality production is achieved through an off-site manufacturing process and costs are further reduced through a minimized ‘on-site’ construction period. Where traditional on-site built housing projects take months to years, our on-site construction phase takes days, ensuring quicker ‘move-in’ times. Zoning dependant, our homes can be designed and built as bungalows, townhomes or apartments. Each of our models are issued their own CSA-A277 certificate. The CSA-A277 certification process follows the Ontario Building Code (OBC) and ensures local building departments are only needed to inspect connections to municipal services (water, electrical, etc). Further advantages to the land developer include:
Construction costs are reliably very high due to land, material, labour and other associated costs. NOW Housing provides a unique modular approach to focus on customers with smaller budgets and an interest in faster building times. The reduced cost solution further helps to address the shortage of affordable housing across Ontario, via off-site manufacturing, assembled on-site within mere hours. Construction using conventional wood framing and associated materials, presents an average cost between 2 and 3 times more, with increased time restraints and lower quality control.
Modular housing is an emerging field with completed projects in Toronto, Hamilton, Vancouver Boston, New York, and many cities overseas. A advantage of the modular design allows for a relatively quick decision to implementation process, as well can be utilized as a short-term solution while a community grows.
