W A Shelter
Western Australia Shelter
The “My Home” concept is based on the Housing First model and is delivered to a site provided by the Western Australian State Government at a peppercorn lease.
It is devised by Michelle Blakeley a local architect with a keen interest in homeless housing.
Michelle has brought together several partners including Offsite a Perth construction technology company that create and deliver the prefabricated timber wall and floor cassettes.
Rotary WA will fit the house out with furniture and homewares as well as creating gardens and St. Patrick’s Community Support Centre who will eventually manage the completed property and tenants.
National Association of Woman in Construction Award
The team of contributors and supporters of the “My Home” project for housing homeless people has won the 2020 WA Women In Construction – Social Responsibility Award.
This award recognises the achievements of an outstanding woman who has shown significant commitment to others, or another social cause within the construction industry.
