Affordable & Social Housing

Heather Street Residences (Reiderman Residences), Vancouver, British Columbia

Background icon


In 2017, the Government of BC announced a funding commitment towards 600 units of temporary modular housing in Vancouver. The Vancouver Affordable Housing Agency (VAHA) wanted to build on the success of the 220 Terminal Avenue project while evolving the design to change the perception of both supporting housing and modular construction.

The housing units needed to address an immediate need for living spaces for the homeless in the city, as part of the government’s commitment to tackling homelessness and the housing affordability crisis province wide. The project timeframe was very aggressive and VAHA knew our modular solutions were the best path to success.

We were awarded the contract to design, manufacture, transport and assemble 78 units of temporary modular housing across two buildings at 7430 and 7460 Heather Street.
