NCCD partners with SEED-Homes for Nunavut modular home push

NCCD partners with SEED-Homes for Nunavut modular home push

CALGARY, ALTA. – NCC Development Limited (NCCD) has announced it has placed an order with Calgary-based Seed-Homes Inc. for six modular homes for delivery to Nunavut this summer.

The order is the first of many, a release said, as Nunavut faces a housing crisis requiring at least 3,000 homes.

“We are very excited to announce this partnership with SEED-Homes. SEED’s unique design, extensive use of resilient and recyclable materials, and the fact that the homes can literally be folded so that they can be shipped directly to the Nunavut region, will help us to quickly address the housing crisis,” NCCD president and CEO Clarence Synard said in a statement.

SEED specializes in the design, manufacture and assembly of steel homes designed around a central utility corridor, the release said.

The corridor is made out of a solid steel skid, modelled after similar structures used in the oil and gas industry.

All heavy appliances, utility equipment, kitchen and bathrooms are aligned along and within the single corridor to keep the weight of the home centralized and arranged along a length-wise configuration of the home, which allows for the rest of the structure and walls to unfold and attach to the central corridor, the release said.

The six homes will each be 1,152 square feet and are designed to be manufactured off-site and delivered to Nunavut communities via intermodal logistics and transport. Solar panels can be fitted on the roof, and various internal features will be included to address the unique needs of Nunavut communities, the release said.
