Dogs at Work
We started our business journey as a general contracting firm servicing the Northumberland, Durham Region and Kawartha Lakes areas. After a couple years and with the emergence of Covid-19 and a worsening rental and housing climate BuildX turned their sights to the development and distribution of both shipping box and modular tiny homes.
Owner Jordan Stevenson began developing concepts for shipping container home in hopes of completing a workable affordable living concept with a budget of $20,000. However, a short time after the work began it was shut down by the building department.
Feeling defeated Jordan went back to the drawing board to find solutions for affordable housing and that’s where he developed Clix. A new accessory dwelling unit solution to a growing housing problem – modular housing that grows with you, is easy to put together, is tech oriented, and most importantly – IS AFFORDABLE!
“To provide adaptable and affordable housing for all.”
Our mission is simple, we’re changing the landscape of adaptable affordable housing and building a future no one thought possible! We’re in the middle of a housing crisis with over 230,000 Canadian homeless on the streets in 2021 alone. Clix is an affordable ADU/ARU unit that can be shipped anywhere, and added to your property as either a primary residence or a secondary unit. There’s no need to move as your family grows Clix will grow with you!
“Affordable housing. Community. Accessible Technology.”
With prices starting under $60,000, we are taking affordable housing to new heights. We aim to improve access to community housing and achieve housing stability throughout Canada. We see a future of modern modular systems designed with cutting-edge materials and technology.
We believe that strength lies in communities. That’s why we are committed to partnering with local businesses and non-profit organizations, helping make our community an even better place!
Buildx is proud to announce that we’ve partnered with Pledge 1%. By doing so we have dedicated 1% of our revenue to charities and giving back to our local community. All community projects & donations will be posted on our website soon!
Our manufacturing center consists of a 10 plot community R&D facility. As part of our community efforts we’ve partnered with the Green Wood Coalition to place a family in need in each of our 10 R&D Clix units. Not only will this allow us to receive direct feedback from those who live there to make our product better but it will also give a family in need a home.
Dogs at Work Campaign
Here at BuildX we LOVE dogs! Our partnership with the the Northumberland Humane Society started after owner/founder Jordan Stevenson saw the story of one shelter pup named Buddy. Buddy had spent an estimated half of his life in shelters and had been to multiple adoption events without a success of finding him a new home.
Buddy’s story influenced Jordan to reach out to the Northumberland Humane Society to see what he could do to help improve the lives of these shelter pups and thus, Dogs at Work was created.
We now collaborate with NHS to have homeless dogs become a part of our office space a couple of days a week in order to improve their socialization, provide mental stimulation, and exercise.
