We have thoughtfully designed to use non-biodegradable interiors that result in low maintenance year after year and provide an easy turnover timetable between tenants. Drywall has been replaced with a more durable and maintenance free wall panel system. High finish vinyl flooring eliminates odour and allergy traps and transfer between tenants.
Faced with rising costs, including post-COVID-19 requirements, growers are on the lookout for more cost effective construction solutions allowing for quality housing, without incurring heavy costs. With NOW Housing’s dedicated background provided affordable housing, worker housing for the agriculture sector is a perfect fit, not to mention how modular construction can provide faster solutions than conventional construction. Consider, construction can occur off-site while permits are being processed and no weather delays.
