Nexii is Betting on Sustainable Construction – NY Times

Although we don’t often associate climate change with buildings and construction, they are responsible for almost 40 percent of global energy-related carbon emissions, according to the United Nations. About 30 percent of these emissions come from building operations (primarily heating, cooling and lighting), and another 11 percent is “embodied” carbon, or carbon released during the construction process itself.

Nexii leverages state-of-the-art green building technology and patented materials in the construction of new buildings and retrofit industries. Nexii’s whole-building solution utilizes a patented material, Nexiite, and the proprietary Nexii design and assembly process, which together enable the construction of sustainable, cost‑efficient, durable, and disaster-resilient buildings. Nexii materials can be used for buildings of all heights and sizes, and are suitable for commercial/institutional/ industrial, mixed-use, multi-family residential, and single-family detached homes, as well as for retrofitting existing buildings. The fully operational 186,000 ft2 NexUS1 facility in Hazleton, a client of BFTP_NEPA, is the first Nexii-certified manufacturer of the system in the U.S., serving the northeast and mid-Atlantic states. NexUS1 currently employs more than 100 and will employ 300 at full capacity. Via The New York Times
