June 1, 2015 | Blog
Attending Canada Green Building Council National Conference and Building Expo this Wednesday and Thursday?
Be sure to visit InterCoast on the trade show floor. Also setting up a booth at the expo will be one of our valued partners, Tech-Crete.
If you haven’t planned on attending the June 3 – 4 event, you might want to reconsider. Billed as the 2015 Building Lasting Change Expo, the two-day event at the Vancouver Trade and Convention Centre brings building professionals together to discuss how building materials can mitigate the impacts of climate change. Experts from across Canada and around the world will be attending the conference to share their insights on green building and sustainable neighbourhood development. They’ll be discussing how addressing climate change through the choice of building materials can make our cities more resilient, citizens healthier and the natural environment more robust.
BC Company Tech-Crete Makes Being Green Easy
The Canada Green Building Council is a great opportunity to discover practical solutions to creating greener buildings and achieving LEED certification, a requirement for most large civic projects. A company that can help architects, engineers and contractors achieve these goals is TechCrete. A Canadian company based in Surrey, BC, TechCrete offers a variety of insulated panel products that address building envelope needs. TechCrete’s CTI® Roof Panels are concrete topped, self-ballasted panels designed for use in protective membrane roofs assemblies and their SRI® Roof Panels offer all the advantages of CTI® Panel but are also solar reflective. And the company’s CFI™ Wall Panels, pre-finished exterior concrete faced insulating panels are ideal for new or retrofit exterior applications. These high R-fact factor panels consist of Styrofoam coated in a latex modified concrete, making for a durable, yet lightweight construction material.
The usage of TechCrete Concrete Faced Insulating Wall & Roof Panels can generate LEED credits in seven areas of evaluation.
TechCrete: Past, Present and Future
TechCrete began manufacturing composite insulation panels for DOW in the early ’80s. Today, more than 20 million square feet of TechCrete roof panels and 2 million square feet of the company’s wall panels have been installed throughout Canada. As the building industry continues to address the issues of climate change and the need for green solutions, TechCrete will continue to be a leader in green building envelope into the future. InterCoast is proud to be a part of that future.
