Finalization of the Single Quarters Project is underway at 19 Wing Comox. Construction commenced early January 2014, both on-site and off-site, at a local factory in Cumberland, B.C. These eight modular units were fabricated indoors to ensure high product quality and control. Each unit arrived fully finished and has sufficient storage capacity including a distinct 4-foot crawl space. Offsite building prefabrication allowed for concurrent execution of ground-prep and foundation work. At the end of March the units arrived and were lifted into position using 90-foot crane which also placed the two roof sections. Each 55 sq. meter unit is equipped with individual heat pumps and HRV’s to improve energy cost-efficiency. DND’s possession date is May 6 2014 for a total project cost of < $1M.
