YWCA Supportive Housing Building 2

YWCA Supportive Housing Building 2

Multi - Unit Residential

YW phase 2: is the second of two-mass timber buildings to be constructed on the YWCA property in Kitchener Ontario. Based on the success of the first building, Mass Timber was chosen again to speed construction and completion, for the health and wellbeing of occupants, and environmental benefit. Different than the first building in overall size, unit size and layout, the second building demonstrates how Element5’s Sustainable, Affordable Housing Solution can adapt to different lot sizes, customer and occupant requirements
