While there is high demand for subsidized housing in Hamilton, CityHousing Hamilton has units that are not lived in because they need costly renovations and updates.
Second year students of the Building Renovation Technician Program at Mohawk College prepared estimates, gathered materials, coordinated schedules and inspected properties of CityHousing Hamilton. The teaching materials that are functional in the type of environment provided by a renovation site were prepared by staff.
Next, the students will utilize a student-led project management system and start working on the sites November 29th 2017 with an initial orientation in order to begin the renovation process.
