Single Room Occupancy Renewal Initiative Project PDF
Detailed case study of the Single Room Occupancy Renewal Initiative Project, the 2013 National Award for Social Housing Innovation.
Thirteen single-room occupancy (SRO) hotels owned by BC Housing in Vancouver’s Downtown Eastside, century old buildings housing approximately 900 of some of Canada's most vulnerable residents, were in urgent need of renovation. Procuring interim accommodation for displaced tenants, providing ongoing access to medical and social programs during renovations, and staging the construction completion payments are among this P3’s innovations. The project achieved value for money of $5.2 million compared to traditional procurement. By providing more stability, autonomy and dignity for residents, it will also reduce the human and economic costs of homelessness.
This 22-page case study provides details on the elements that made this project the 2013 National Award for Social Housing Innovation winner. Information on the project includes: quick facts, procurement process, structure of the agreement, financial arrangements, risk allocation, benefits, communications, labour, monitoring, testimonials and partner contacts.
