Factory-Built Housing Issues in BC
There are three main issues that face the factory-built Housing industry in British Columbia today:
- The acceptance of foundations and anchorage that comply with CSA Z240.10.1 which provides requirements for surface foundations and is referenced in the BC Building Code
- Permitting, inspection and acceptance of homes constructed in accordance with the BC Building Code
- Discriminatory bylaws
Foundations and Anchorage are discussed in Module 4. Permitting, inspection and acceptance of factory-built homes are discussed in Module 6. Municipal bylaws are discussed in Module 7 along with some other challenges that are faced across the country.
