#Net Zero #Passive House #Carbon Neutral 

The ASK Wellness Society in partnership with BC Housing challenged the design and construction community to design and build a high performance, low energy, multifamily Passive House building with 30 residential suites as well as supportive office spaces and meeting areas. 

 

The society supports individuals in the community to provide them with opportunities and resources to change their current situation. It’s about reaching out to those people who are homeless and battling addictions, helping them find housing and medical care, addressing their addictions, stabilizing mental health issues and ultimately, providing them with the skills to re-enter the work force. ASK Wellness administers an unconditional sense of hope to those who are convinced that they are incapable of ever achieving a stable, meaningful life.
