Former Vancouver Mayor Gregor Robertson Advances Green Building Globally with Nexii

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE — January 21, 2020

Vancouver, B.C. — Canadian building and construction technology company, Nexii Building Solutions Inc.(Nexii), is pleased to announce that Gregor Robertson, former Mayor of Vancouver, is helping Nexii expand globally as Executive Vice President of Strategy and Partnerships.

After 14 years of public service, and most recently 10 years as Mayor of Vancouver, Robertson is focusing his time and energy on the climate crisis.

“We are at a critical time for restoring our environment,” said Gregor Robertson. “Buildings are the largest source of climate pollution. That’s why when Nexii — the creators of new breakthrough green building technologies — asked me to join their team, I didn’t hesitate. I’m proud to be part of a Canadian company with significant potential to make a huge positive impact on the environment and communities globally.”

Nexii has developed innovative solutions with the potential to both significantly reduce the construction sector’s impact on the environment and help tackle the global housing shortage. Nexii’s proprietary building material, Nexiite, which together with the Nexii design, manufacturing and assembly process, facilitates the rapid construction of sustainable, cost-efficient, durable and disaster-resilient buildings. Nexii products are suitable for new commercial, institutional, industrial, and mixed-use buildings, and for retrofitting existing buildings.

“Nexii will not only help to reduce the impact of buildings on our climate, but can also help address the housing crunch in growing cities,” Robertson continued. “We are currently facing a global housing shortage and faster construction processes and retrofit solutions for existing buildings will help improve cost efficiencies and drive housing supply. We need zero emission buildings that are affordable to build and operate, and we need to retrofit existing buildings that are the number one cause of climate change.”

Stephen Sidwell, Chief Executive Officer of Nexii, commented: “We value Gregor’s leadership. He brings a wealth of experience and a unique understanding of how cities, developers, and construction companies can work together to provide more sustainable buildings. Gregor is a globally influential advocate for climate action and supports Nexii’s mission to protect and care for our planet.”

Nexii develops climate-friendly whole building solution to reduce global impact of the construction sector

October 29, 2019

Vancouver, B.C. — Canadian company Nexii Building Solutions Inc. (Nexii) has developed an innovative whole building solution with the potential to significantly reduce the construction sector’s impact on the environment. The whole building solution is comprised of the proprietary low-carbon material Nexiite, which together with the Nexii design and assembly process, facilitates the rapid construction of sustainable, cost-efficient, durable and disaster-resilient buildings.

“The building and construction sector is responsible for 39% of climate pollution,” said Stephen Sidwell, Chief Executive Officer of Nexii. “I’m incredibly proud to be part of a solution to a significant contributing factor to the climate crisis. Nexii has the potential to advance building technology and reduce climate impacts created by the construction sector and buildings.”

Environmental impacts are expected to be largely reduced through Nexii’s fabrication and assembly process, which require fewer materials leading to less onsite waste. In addition, the invention of Nexii’s proprietary low-carbon material, Nexiite, means less concrete than traditional builds, resulting in substantially reduced end-to-end carbon emissions. Nexii’s suitability for the significant retrofit market could also lead to improved energy efficiencies of existing buildings, cutting carbon emissions.

The company is currently scaling up to meet high demand locally and globally. In the last six months, Nexii has received CAD $10 million in investment, completed its 20,000 square foot pilot manufacturing facility and invested in designing, engineering and testing the Nexii material and assembly process. Key investors and early customers include Lotus Capital Corp., Beedie, and Omicron Canada Inc.

“As a member of Nexii’s advisory committee, we are excited about the incredible potential we see in Nexii, and the significant pipeline of projects it is poised to deliver,” said Shenoor Jadavji, Founder and President of Lotus Capital Corp. “We are not only excited by the potential for broad applications of Nexii’s technology, but we also see key points of alignment in terms of utilizing the Nexii technology in some of our own developments.”

Nexii continues to invest in its manufacturing, research and development, testing and licensing programs, as well as fulfilling the high demand reflected in its current sales pipeline. Nexii is currently aggressively accelerating its go-to-market strategy, actively building full-scale commercial production facilities, as well as developing partners interested in licensing agreements.
