The next GORMG meeting will be held on Thursday, December 11, from 9AM - 12PM, starting at the Canadian Centre for Housing Technology, located at 1200 Montreal Rd.
All members, guests and new students are welcome.
Topic: Flex Housing Prototype
Presented by Mr. Ken Ruest from the Canadian Housing and Mortgage Corporation (CMHC).
CMHC's FlexHousing is an innovative approach to home design, renovation and construction that is able to adapt and convert affordably as a household's lifestyle and needs change. As the needs of the household occupants change, ideally the floorplan, amenities and services of the home can be easily and cost-effectively adapted. Visit this website for more information - http://www.cmhc.ca/flex/en/index.cfm
The tour/presentation will be approximately 45 minutes, followed by 45 minutes of discussion, GORMG elections, and association updates at a nearby location (walking distance). The presentation starts at 9am sharp. Please bring a clean/dry pair of shoes or slippers to wear inside the FlexHouse prototype.
All GORMG members are invited afterwards to Louis Steak House - 1682 Cyrville Rd - the lunch buffet is only $10.95. And as an end of year holiday treat, save $5 off your meal if you attend the morning presentation and vote in the GORMG elections.
As always, feel free to invite guests but note that guests are limited to attending a maximum of two meetings without being a member of the OAHI. Should they wish to attend more, they will be required to join the Association in one of the available membership categories. All members and guests are required to sign-in before the meeting begins. Members receive CEU's (Continuing Education Units) for their full attendance to our monthly meetings.
From: Mr Ken Ruest,
The Canadian Centre for Housing Technology (CCHT) is located at 1200 Montreal Road, on the NRC campus. Please note that people should park in the parking area next to the beige vinyl sided house/lab, and that we do operate the FlexHouse and Info centre with no regular cleaning staff--therefore we would ask that people bring with them inside shoes (boots off at the door!).
Here are the directions ...
1200 Montreal Road is the address (this is just to give you an idea of the general location since you will not see any address number along Montreal Road for the NRC Campus).
If you are coming from CMHC on Montreal Road, after you pass Bathgate Drive, take the ramp down to NRC (See image below). At the bottom of the ramp at the T, turn left to go under the Montreal Road overpass towards the traffic circle. Go around the traffic circle and turn right after the M-1 Security Guard building, then left at the T (You will be able to see the CCHT red brick buildings from this point on the left). Turn left at the first laneway and go all around the CCHT Info Centre beyond the cedar hedge until you get to the parking area.
If you are coming from the Queensway (either from downtown Ottawa Hwy 417 & 174 or from Orleans Hwy 174), you can take the Blair Road exit and go north (towards the shopping centre) on Blair up to Montreal Road. Turn left onto Montreal Road and take the ramp down to NRC.
