2009 Kindred

 

With BC Housing providing subsidies and Vancouver Coastal Health providing funding for addiction recovery, Kindred Place welcomed 86 singles in 2009 under the Provincial Homelessness Initiative.  Thirty units were designated for individuals taking the bold step in addiction recovery with the aid of an addiction recovery support worker seven days a week.

 

Built following LEED technology guidelines, the builders followed stringent environmental standards during the development and construction phase.  Just one way this was accomplished was by following the Energy Performance Standard which provided design guidelines to ensure the project was designed to use 25% less energy than required by the Model National Energy Code of Canada.  This translates into a better quality building that is less taxing on the environment and healthier for the tenants.
