Independence Place Phase 1

In May of 2008, Scotcor Rentals Ltd. partnered with Canada PEI Affordable Housing Agreement to develop affordable and accessible housing units in Summerside. Scotcor Rentals Ltd. built an 11 unit building for people of all ages including seniors and families with young children. All apartment units include wheelchair ramps at each unit entrance, main level access, open concept design, accessible showers, higher toilets, grab bars, wider doorways, and appliances that are easily accessible for tenants who are in wheelchairs.

 

The units are rented to persons with low to moderate household incomes as defined by the Prince Edward Island Housing Corporation and the Province of Prince Edward Island. One bedroom heated apartments with 650 square feet of finished living spaces and five new appliances rented for $500 a month. Two bedroom heated apartments with 950 square feet of living space including five new appliances rented for $650. The building was constructed using environmentally friendly technology and building materials. For example the entire wall structure was built using insulated concrete forms from the foundation to the rafters. Cellulose insulation was used in the attic which is made from recycled paper products, and a geothermal heating system was used to heat the entire building. The 11 unit affordable and accessible building opened for occupancy on May 1st, 2008. This housing development gave eleven individuals with physical disabilities in Summerside some of their independence back. Corinna has appropriately name the building "Independence Place" for that reason.

Scotcor Rentals Ltd. has received the Summerside Chamber of Commerce Excellence in Business Award in 2008 in the category of Community Enhancement for the building and operation of Independence Place. Most recently, on November 16th, 2010, they traveled to Ottawa to be recognized on a nation level for "Best Practices in Affordable Housing: Recognizing Leadership from the Private Sector." by CMHC. Corinna says the awards they have received were a bonus for a job well done but her favorite reward comes from the tenants who live there. She has received numerous letters and phone calls from tenants and family members telling her what a difference Independence Place has made in the quality of life for the people who live there.

Independence Place Phase 2

On October 1st of 2010, thanks to The Canada PEI Affordable Housing Agreement, they opened the doors to Independence Place Phase 2 and eleven more affordable/accessible housing units in Summerside. The development of Phase 2 has continued to receive the same positive response and success as Phase 1 with lots of happy tenants.

Independence Place Phase 2 was also a finalist on the national level in the category of "Community Development" at the Canadian Home Builders Association's prestigious SAM Awards in Alberta.

Scotcor Construction Ltd. is a small company operated by Scott and Corinna Costain, a husband and wife team. They started the company in 1995. They employ seven people year round and sometimes a student in the Summer. They have a very knowledgeable and friendly staff. Clients continually comment on how efficient and professional the staff really is, making the building experience a positive one. One of their clients wrote, “You made the whole experience seem effortless and stress free (which isn’t easy with a 9 month pregnant woman)”. Scotcor doesn’t have a high turn over in staff. Most of the staff are licensed carpenters that have been with the company for a number of years. They like to keep a small staff so they have a lot of control over the quality of their homes. You don’t have to worry that you are going to get the bad crew or the good crew when you hire Scotcor, their crew is always the same so you always get a well-built Scotcor house every time. Scotcor Construction Ltd. relies almost solely on the referrals from previous clients for their work. They build eight to nine homes a year paying special attention to the quality and details of each home. They enjoy building with the latest technology (geo-thermal heating systems, insulated concrete forms). They are R2000 certified builders who can build and register your home with the R2000 program. Scotcor is always trying to build the most energy efficient homes that are economical to heat while using environmentally friendly products. Scotcor Construction has been recognized as the recipients of the Waste Watch Award in the past and has also been featured in a national magazine for their efforts as an environmentally conscious company. They are also registered builders with the Atlantic Home Warranty Program so all of their homes come with a 7-year home warranty. 
What sets Scotcor apart from other companies is their strong desire to go the extra mile to make your building experience a very positive one. Our staff is very efficient and knowledgeable about building homes. They take great pride in all of their homes, no matter how large or small. They are all built with care for quality and detail. They are up on the latest technologies and are interested in learning about new products and techniques. If give the opportunity, Scotcor’s friendly and professional staff will exceed your expectations!Scott has been a licensed carpenter for 15 years. He takes several courses every year to stay on top of the building industry. He enjoys building with the latest technology (geo-thermal heating systems, insulated concrete forms, etc.). Clients can choose to sit down with Scott and have their home designed using 3-D architect, or they may opt to bring their own blueprints to have him price their project. Scott prices all of the jobs himself. He presents his clients with a very detailed contract stating the particulars of his proposal. Scott is a very professional and knowledgeable builder. He works with his clients, as much or a little as they wish, to make sure the project is a success.
As a general contractor, Scott overseas all of the work by staff and sub-trades on his site. Scott uses only the best skilled tradesmen and women. Scott’s personal pride in producing a quality product with added attention to details is clearly visible throughout the entire project. He shows a lot of respect for each project, building each home with as much care as if it was to be his very own.Corinna is responsible for the office administration of Scotcor Construction. She handles the company’s finances. She also works with sub-trades and suppliers to ensure a quality product. Corinna often assists clients when they are choosing flooring products, cabinets, light fixtures, and paint colors. The house is wonderful, you guys did a great job!!! You made the whole experience seem effortless and stress free (which isn’t easy with a 9 month pregnant woman). Thanks for everything you guys did for us, we greatly appreciate everything!  Just wanted to let you know how pleased we are with our new house. 
The house, and dealing with you both (& staff), exceeded our expectations. We couldn’t be more pleased and satisfied with the results. We feel like we’ve made new friends! We will recommend your services to whoever asks; and look forward to building our next home together!  
Just a note to thank you for building us such a lovely home. We are so pleased. Thanks for making building our home such a pleasurable experience.
Just writing to express our sincere thanks for helping us build our new house in Margate. 
Having been through the house building process before, we were well aware of how painful and stressful the process can be, and this time around the experience was painless and pleasurable.
Scotcor Construction is Scott and Corinna and your personal approach and treating every house project like your own is extremely rare in the construction industry. We cannot express how happy we are with the finished product and how much fun it was working with you guys before, during, and after the house was finished. 
The finishing part is always the most difficult in any project and your commitment to finishing projects of high quality on time and on budget is again very rare in the construction industry. 
Thank you again for the pleasurable experience, and we would be more than willing to provide a recommendation at any time in the future.
