Affordable Housing at Simon Fraser University

 

Location: Burnaby, BC

 

This 90-unit rental apartment complex aims to address the urgent need for good quality affordable housing for young families near Simon Fraser University’s Burnaby Mountain Campus. The goal is to create a simple yet elegant building that will be durable, comfortable and affordable. Energy modeling was integrated into the design process in order to optimize the performance-cost ratio and make well-informed decisions. Construction is underway (summer 2020).
