Adera Development Halfway to Fulfilling Its Goal of Delivering 1,000 Mass Timber Homes in Vancouver, BC

Adera Development, the Vancouver, BC-based homebuilder, is at the cutting edge of mass timber construction in the province. According to reporting by SiteNews (3-1-23), Adera recently surpassed the 500 mark on its commitment to deliver 1,000 mass timber homes in Metro Vancouver.

The latest project is bringing homes to market across two communities: PURA in Surrey Central West and SoL in West Coquitlam. Both SoL and PURA are constructed utilizing Adera’s SmartWood proprietary cross-laminated timber (CLT) building material. While matching concrete and steel in strength and durability, SmartWood sequesters air components, rendering it better for the environment and reducing construction timelines, noise, and labor requirements.

The SoL project represents Adera’s second mass timber community in the area, following its Duet CityHomes at Como Lake Avenues, SiteNews says. SoL brings one-, two-, and three-bedroom homes to the market. PURA offers one- and two-bedrooms plus den homes set within two six-story buildings, which include over 12,000 square feet of shared resident amenities within walking distance of Surrey Central Station. Both projects are designed to the international Fitwel rating standard, which considers occupant health and wellness in every aspect of the design.
