The goal was to build a modular net zero ready custom Whistler home that was indistinguishable from the neighborhood design style

Our intent was to reduce construction time on site with less impact on the neighborhood. On site construction was reduced from typical 14 months to under 8 including site works and foundations, despite significant delays with a modular manufacturer bankruptcy requiring additional finishing on site and extending construction time by over 3 months

The home consists of 5 individual modules with the lower 2 modules set into the full-height foundation

Using a factory process, we could:

  1. Limit the delays from lack of local skilled trades
  2. Reduce impact on our labour resources
  3. Reduce waste
  4. Improve quality
  5. Reduce trade travel time to site further reducing GHGI’s
  6. Demonstrate that modular construction could meet the standard for a custom luxury mountain home and meet the net zero ready criteria to qualify for the CHBA Net Zero Ready Label

The Process
