Design Bigger, Better, Bolder - With Wood
Choose a scenario:
A family has engaged you to build them new home;
A land owner wants you to design a 50-story complex;
A mining company needs 100 work camps;
What if you built these construction projects out of wood?
Most architects and developers now understand that due to the advancements of materials such as CLT's and glulam beams this isn't a pipe-dream anymore, and mass timber buildings are popping up everywhere.
But there's always that "what if"...
That's where NexGen, and only NexGen, comes in.
What if all the wood in all your projects:
Was protected from fire;
Was protected from mould, rot, and wood boring insects, including termites;
Used only non-toxic, eco-friendly chemicals (unlike deadly, toxic pressure treatment chemicals);
Came with a global warranty for all of the above, the only policy of its kind ever written;
Had all of the above without adding even 1% to the overall building costs?
NexGen, a Canadian company, is protecting wood buildings, the people who live and work in them – and the builders who build them.
NexGen was chosen to safeguard the lives of all future patrons of the Sydney Opera House. The Sydney Opera House is one of the most iconic structures in the world, and the very fact that their team of building professionals and engineers chose NexGen to protect all the wood speaks to the unmatched protection and reputation of our revolutionary, eco-friendly technology.
NexGen was a key supplier for the Panama Canal Expansion Project, the EU's tallest (30m) wood-clad building used NexGen on all the cladding, and NexGen protected the glulam beams and CLT’s in the 6-story addition to the Penticton Lakeside Resort.
Why are they, and so many additional CLT / wood builders on six continents, choosing NexGen?
NexGen-coated materials (any wood substrate) are warranted for fire - the only warranty like it in the world. NexGen products are also warranted for the prevention of mould, rot, and insect infestation from all wood-boring insects, including termites (50 years for covered material, 30 years for exterior use).
You only need a single coat which can be applied to the wood via brush, spray, flood coating, roller, or dipping, and can be done either at the factory or on the job site.
Best of all, NexGen coatings are remarkably inexpensive, as little as 2 cents / square foot of coverage area.
NexGen will continue to change the way wood is protected, moving the industry away from toxic pressure treatment chemicals to an eco-friendly, non-toxic, low-energy-consumption alternative.
There’s a reason no one builds a home or commercial property with pressure-treated lumber, just as there is a reason more and more architects and developers are using NexGen to do so.
