CONTRACTORS/CONSTRUCTION MANAGERS

Ottawa Cohousing will be seeking Project Managers/Construction Managers interested in creating viable, creative and successful cohousing communites within the Metropolitan Ottawa region. 

As Affinity Groups are formed and basic criteria established, Ottawa Cohousing will match groups to development sites and a construction/project manager to take on the work of constructing the cohousing development and to coordinate construction and bridge financing.

TIMING: The group work is done in tandem with the site assessments and design work. So that by the time the group is finished with their working modules, they have a project manager/construction manager lined up and ideally have a site confirmed.

Rosaline J. Hill Architecture Inc. will be hired as the leading development consultant and architect.  RJH will design, draft and 3D model; oversee necessary City approvals; submit required applications and permits; and prepare construction drawings

and specifications.

At the end of the design phase, purchase agreements and lease agreements will be signed.  A deposit will be required from purchasers (first and last

months rent from tenants).

Once the approvals are finalized (approximately 1 year) typically 70% sales are required to begin construction. Units and membership will be presold, as with any condo development.  New residents/households will be welcomed into the group if they are a good fit.

Ottawa Cohousing will assist with the assembly of a consultant team and get the ball rolling.  We will then act as a liaison between the Consultants, the Construction Manager and the Cohousing Clients.
