The speed afforded by modular wood-framed construction allowed Vancouver Coastal Health to construct new much-needed staff housing in the remote community of Bella Bella efficiently and cost-effectively. The decision to use
wood-framed modular construction ensured that the new units would be in place quickly.
Bella Bella’s 12 modular units, 4.25 metres wide x 9.75 metres long x 4.75 metres tall each, used wood throughout. Walls and floors were constructed with standard spruce-pine-fir (SPF) dimension lumber, while structural plywood and oriented strand board were used for the roof and wall sheathing as well as for the subfloor.
