RDH Technical Bulletin No. 013: Modular Construction for Energy Efficient, Affordable Housing in Canada


This RDH Technical Bulletin covers lessons learned from some early modular housing projects, describes three case studies of modular construction in Canada, and summarizes key takeaways for scaling up projects like these across Canada.

Housing provider organizations are seeking to provide fast housing solutions to underserved communities in Canada that have inadequate housing. The push to provide sustainable, affordable housing has led the construction industry to innovate new strategies for delivering housing solutions. Prefabrication, including volumetric modular construction, is one solution to address the need for fast, affordable housing that also meets energy performance targets such as the BC Energy Step Code and Passive House standards.
