Delegation - Accessory Dwelling Units

Tony Osborn Architecture & Design Inc. was contracted by the City to prepare pre-approved accessory dwelling unit designs.  Council was presented with five designs, including two carriage homes and three secondary dwellings.  The designs meet Step Code 3 energy efficiency and simplify and expedite a no-hassle permit ready building process.  This will net 15 - 20% savings for developers, saving architectural, structural engineering and building permit fees.
