Mayor appreciates 12-storey structure’s proximity to naval base, graving dock and Seaspan

Except that's a pretty distant 3rd or 4th place consideration when people choose where to live.   97%* of dockyard workers live in a household with car ownership.

Its a modular build.  'Cubes' will be built with full elec/plumbing on the mainland, shipped over and craned into place.  Construction is expected to take half the time of traditional concrete build.  Its also Passive House certified... this is shaping up to be a pretty exciting build actually.

Exciting perhaps, aesthetically pleasing...well, time will tell. It's fortunate that this project has zero competition in the visual appeal department anywhere in close proximity.

Agreed, the location is less than stellar.  Also, Passive House builds are focused on energy efficiency, so don't expect expansive glazing walls... looks not too bad based on the rendering.  Either way, glad to see someone is thinking outside of the curtain wall/concrete box.

Interested to see what pricing on these units will be.

This rendering certainly doesn't help.

Ah, so that's why it has a shipping containeresque feel to it.

At 12 storeys, this will be the second-highest tall-timber building in BC (after the 18-storey Brock Commons building at UBC).

The custom on-site build model of construction is archaic - one of the last industries where its the norm so I'm sure we'll see more of this going forward. 

Does anyone know where these modules are being constructed? Is it a third party company, or something they do in-house?

StructureLam in Penticton does basically all the panels for BC projects so very likely them:  https://www.structurlam.com

They do CLT panels, I am not sure that is the construction method here.  I almost get the feeling like they are building offsite cubes and it all fits together on site.  I am trying too get some inside info.  I think the general is from Edmonton, but not sure

^ I seem to remember reading somewhere that fabrication was going to be done in the lower mainland with assembly on site. One of the team partners listed is Intelligent City in Vancouver.

 

EDIT: It appears that these guys design, manufacture, and assemble pre-fab buildings. https://intelligent-city.com/

There is fencing and signage up on the site. This is a cool building. New and innovative construction, decent height, and pretty affordable with 300k 1 bedrooms and cheap fees and utilities due to the construction type. I like it.
