Bella Bella multi-unit

Spani Development in the News:
October 17, 2016

Spani is proud to be a part of this innovative project with Mobius Architecture.

“In 2004, a fire destroyed the staff housing complex at the RW Large Memorial Hospital, (in Bella Bella) and Vancouver Coastal Health [VCH] needed to construct a replacement facility…”

“At the time, VCH was actively considering changing the performance requirements for new facilities from LEED to Passive House. Buildings certified to Passive House require up to 90%  less heating and cooling energy than an average building…
The Bella Bella project was seen as an opportunity to put this change into practice. An RFP was issued for a design/ build contract, including a basic program, design criteria and the requirement for Passive House certification.”

“Mobius Architecture had been involved in the assessment of the fire damaged structure, and saw the opportunity for an innovative solution to this challenging project. It sought out Spani Developments, a local company that had worked previously for VCH, but also had experience building homes in remote locations.”
