Nomodic Receives Two Awards of Distinction from the Modular Building Institute

News | May 4, 2022

Nomodic is proud to announce it has been recognized by the Modular Building Institute (MBI)—the leading international non-profit trade association aimed at advancing offsite construction excellence—with Awards of Distinction for two of its projects. The annual awards were given out at last week’s World of Modular convention, the largest industry event of its kind in North America.

Winning First Place in the “Permanent Modular Hotel Under 10,000 sq.ft.” category was Duffin Cove Oceanfront Lodging: a boutique resort hotel along the picturesque shores of Tofino, BC, completed in 2020.

Nomodic completed two three-storey guest suite buildings and a reception/staff housing building. The state-of-the-art guest buildings are connected by a heavy timber walkway and feature premium, boldly-designed suites with breathtaking ocean views.

Due to the challenging location along the rocky oceanfront bluffs, the guest buildings were placed on an innovative rock-anchor pile and grade beam foundation.


Receiving honorable mention in the “Permanent Modular Multifamily Under 25,000 sq.ft.” category was Nomodic’s Peterson Place Supportive Housing Complex in Surrey, BC.

Built in support of BC Housing’s Rapid Response to Homelessness initiative and operated by Fraserside Community Services Society, the complex was required quickly on an existing site with numerous space challenges. In the end, a special truck with independent wheel suspension was brought in to navigate the tight angles of the space and bring the modules close enough to be craned successfully into place.

The finished 38-suite building contains a number of features and amenities design to leave things better for residents, including a commercial kitchen, private apartments with mini kitchens, and LifeBreath ERV (Energy Recovery Ventilation) units.

We’d like to sincerely thank the Modular Building Institute for this humbling recognition, and thank all of our partners and stakeholders who brought these two incredible buildings to life. Congratulations to all of the winners!
