St Joseph Affordable Homes will provide trade apprenticeships in a range of construction areas, gained through an in-house apprenticeship and life-coaching scheme.
The social and affordable home building programs of CatholicCare Tasmania and Centacare Evolve Housing will provide the building projects for St Joseph Affordable Homes. This allows regular intakes of apprentices to support the construction of more than 100 homes every year. Below are the first projects of St Joseph Affordable Homes.
All homes constructed by St Joseph Affordable Homes have an energy rating of at least 7 stars, ensuring comfort year round as well as reduced energy and living costs.
