Bring in the Big Block party

Ben is the steadfast lead of design and construction project management – including overseeing timelines and budgets to hit the bull’seye (or better). His engineering background and forward-thinking perspective to practical problem solving have been integral to refining Big Block’s modular construction process. Ben is credited with pioneering ever-improving techniques, working out how to build exemplary developments in record time, and achieving Mike Holmes approved craftsmanship.
At Kensington Plaza, we opted for a traditional construction method to build a commercial strip mall and restaurant space due to flexible timelines and to allow time for acquiring tenants. Meanwhile, Kensington Flats was built with modular construction methods and completed in less than 15 months.
In Saskatoon’s South Kensington neighbourhood, located steps away from the commercial conveniences of Kensington Plaza, is Kensington Flats – the award-winning building named Best Apartment Style Project of 2017 by the Saskatoon & Region Home Builder’s Association.
Location alone is not enough to stand out in a competitive first-time home buyer market – Cory Villas required an appealing floor plan and attainable price points. A smart stacked townhome design provided 38 units divided into a selection of two and three bedroom options to suit a wide array of budget-concious homebuyers in Saskatoon. In addition, nearly $500,000 in funding was secured for eligible buyers with annual household incomes below $90,000 to assist with their down payment in the form of non-repayable grants worth 3-5% of the purchase price.
This prime plot of land in Saskatoon’s family-friendly Stonebridge neighbourhood offered a unique opportunity to partner with the City of Saskatoon, the National Affordable Housing Corporation, and the Mike Holmes Group to build quality homes for moderate income families.
We worked closely with our preferred modular specialist on the prairies and our construction crew to successfully replicate an award-winning stacked townhouse design, modified to integrate a fire suppression sprinkler system as required by building code. Construction of Phase 1 consisted of two 12-plexes and was completed in just 6 months. Phase 2 consisted of one 8-plex. The tenants were delighted to hear that their brand new homes were ready for move-in as early as January 2018, and all 32 units were 100% occupied within 3 months.
When Warkentin Residential decided to invest in building a portfolio of rental property for recurring revenue, they found modular construction offered the quick turnaround, modern design, and high quality demanded by the rental market in Swift Current, SK.
