Nexii Building Solutions, which recently completed a first-of-its-kind Starbucks in Abbotsford, B.C., has now completed the first sustainably constructed Popeyes restaurant in Canada.
Also located in Abbotsford, the new restaurant was built in under two weeks. Nexii’s high-performanve green building products are precision manufactured in plants to project specifications using 3D software. This process means the Nexii panels are able to fit together like jigsaw pieces onsite, accelerating standard build times by between 50% and 75%. The process also enables Nexii to eliminate almost all onsite construction waste.
Nexiite, Nexii’s proprietary material used within its building panels, is more thermally efficient and less carbon-intensive than concrete. When assembled, the Nexii panels create an airtight building envelope. Nexii estimates the Popeyes restaurant’s operational building carbon emissions will be reduced by approximately 30%.
The Popeyes restaurant is expected to open to the public by the fall of 2021.
