FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: JUNE 6, 2023
Pacd Homes Launch Offers a Solution to the Housing Crisis

Guelph, Ontario: Pacd Homes, a residential construction company based in Guelph, Ontario, is introducing their new line of modular homes designed to address the evolving housing crisis. 

Pacd homes are environmentally sustainable, compact builds that can enable first-time home ownership, provide options for groups seeking affordable community-based housing, or expand living spaces for multigenerational families and those looking for a novel real estate investment. 

 

A team of local engineers and architects created Pacd’s proprietary building system, which consists of durable, lightweight components that can be rapidly assembled by hand, greatly reducing the build times, costs, and waste associated with traditional construction. The system also optimizes tradework to circumvent the trade shortage, allowing Pacd homes to be built within 6-8 weeks. 

 

“The housing crisis affects all of us—it’s a really tough situation with few real solutions. We wanted to bring a welcome change to home ownership for Canadians,” said Jim Marshall, President & Co-Founder of Pacd Homes. “We knew we needed to think outside of the box, so we came up with a building system to overcome the obstacles in the construction industry by incorporating unique materials. We’re proud to launch our line of modern, high-quality homes at an affordable price.”           

 

Customers can choose from four models ranging from single-storey to two-storey homes. “The homes are shipped and assembled by licensed installation companies, complete with permits and site preparation,” Marshall added. “This is truly a turn-key housing solution that will help many Canadians navigate the current housing market.”
