Project details

McDonald Brothers Construction is working as a construction manager for Ottawa Community Housing on this project, which is a four-storey building located at 900 Merivale Road in Ottawa. It will be one of the city’s most
energy efficient buildings when it is completed, as it is one of Ottawa’s first Passive House designs – meaning it will rely on building techniques and materials instead of HVAC to keep its residents comfortable through the cold winters and warm summers.

The building is also being constructed with accessibility in mind, consisting of 12 barrier-free units and 30 accessible units. An insulated concrete form (ICF) is being used throughout the building and all windows are triple pane. The ground floor will serve as an addition to the Carlington Community Health Centre.
