SHS Consulting is actively involved in the development of affordable housing projects for a wide range of population groups including seniors, families, and persons with disabilities. Including our predecessor firms, we have managed the development of almost 100 projects containing over 5,000 units and housing more than 10,000 persons in need of affordable housing. These projects have ranged in size from a three unit transitional housing project for victims of domestic violence to major projects of 350 units serving a diverse group of residents. This work is carried out on behalf of municipal and private non-profit housing corporations, private sector developers and public/private partnerships.
SHS has developed projects in every corner of Ontario, including major urban centres, small rural communities and remote northern communities.
Our role typically involves identifying the need, helping develop the vision for the project, conducting a feasibility assessment, securing a site, providing advice on the design the building, hiring a wide range of professionals to design, develop and build the project, obtaining municipal planning approval, preparing the capital and operating budgets, assisting in the tendering process, monitoring the budget during construction and ensuring a suitable property management plan is in place to operate the building and support the residents.
SHS regularly assists our clients in identifying and applying for funding to cover the cost of the projects and has successfully secured more than $500 million in government funding for these projects, as well as another $500+ million in construction and mortgage financing.
