Prefabricated, energy-efficient design for high-quality, affordable housing
This 102-unit affordable housing demonstration project—developed by Greater Victoria Housing Society (GVHS) and funded by BC Housing—showcases how prefabricated multi-family construction can achieve BC Energy Step Code Level 4 while remaining cost-effective. Its energy-saving replicable design makes full use of lean project delivery (LPD) methods, prefabricated panels, and digital design tools. The series of seven technical bulletins found below delve into different aspects of this innovative social housing construction project to present this project as an example that can be replicated in other jurisdictions.
