Pauquachin 12-Suite Housing Complex Opens in North Saanich, BC

News | February 1, 2022

We are excited to announce the completion of our newest 12-suite housing complex for Pauquachin First Nation in beautiful North Saanich on Vancouver Island in British Columbia. Built with the support of CMHC’s Rapid Housing Initiative (RHI), the three-level, nearly 12,000 sq.ft. complex includes a combination of 3-bedroom and 1-bedroom suites with features including high quality finishes, energy efficient appliances, large private bathrooms with walk-in showers, and a variety of accessible features.

Designed and constructed in less than 12 months, the complex helps address the urgent need for housing for residents of Pauquachin First Nation and North Saanich. Nomodic’s site team spent only six months on site, reducing traffic and impact to the surrounding community. Nomodic and its partners kept safety foremost in mind, and there were no safety incidents reported.

The project was a testament to the value of collaboration and partnership amongst stakeholders; our collaborative approach with MNP, Pauquachin First Nation, and our network of partners and suppliers throughout the design and construction process provided flexibility and ensured the best possible end result. The client and client’s representatives had the opportunity to come and visit the fabrication facility and witness first-hand the multiple steps of fabrication and quality control that take place with the offsite construction process.

On behalf our entire team, thank you to MNP, Pauquachin First Nation, and all of our project partners and suppliers for helping us leave things better for this amazing community!
