Congratulations to OCN and One House Many Nations for winning an Indigenous Homes Innovation Challenge Accelerator award! The award is to continue to develop OHMNs utility core concept that we prototyped with the the Muskrat hut project.
“Natasha Spence from Opaskwayak Cree Nation (Treaty 5 Territory, Manitoba) will receive support to develop the design of a ‘universal utility core’ and a facility to produce it for local homes. The innovative idea of a ‘universal utility core’ would house all heating, ventilation, plumbing and electrical components of homes. Focus area: Energy independence and efficiency.”
