Arpent’s Projet UHA among finalists of Mouvement 2018 contest

5 December 2017

Arpent is among the 10 finalists of the 2018 Movement contest organized by Novae! We now need the support of the public to increase our chances of winning the big 10,000$ grant. To vote, please visit: https://novae.ca/concours/mouvement/projet-uha/

In conjunction with the Forum UHA 2018, we’re presenting PROJET UHA (for Unité d’Habitation Accessoire –Accessory Dwelling Unit) a specialized service-offer in urban planning with the potential to transform our cities into more sustainable and inclusive environments. UHAs are small dwellings that are added to existing neighbourhoods to meet the changing needs of the population. UHAs improve the affordable housing stock, diversify residential options and support intergenerational housing, all without creating urban sprawl. Currently, their development in Quebec is hampered by several obstacles, including regulatory barriers.

As recipients of the grant, we will be able to finance the implementation of a pilot project in a Quebec municipality and create unprecedented technical support for cities wishing to implement and promote the development of UHAs on their territory.

Arpent hopes to initiate a UHA movement for the benefit of communities. Help us reach our goal by voting for our project!

Samuel, Justin, Charlotte, Amel, Guillaume and Florilène thank you!
