Nexii manufactures high-performance buildings and building products that are sustainable and cost-efficient. Westlake will be the preferred supplier of certain building materials it makes for Nexii, including siding, stone, roof tiles, trim and molding, pipe and fittings.

HOUSTON, US: Westlake Innovations Inc, a subsidiary of Westlake Chemical Corporation, and Nexii Building Solutions Inc, announced that the companies have formed an alliance to support the construction of buildings with a reduced environmental footprint. Also, Westlake will be the preferred supplier of certain building materials it makes for Nexii residential construction, including siding, stone, roof tiles, trim and molding, pipe and fittings.

Nexii is a green construction technology company that designs and manufactures high-performance buildings and building products that are sustainable, cost-efficient and resilient in the face of climate change. Westlake is a global manufacturer and supplier of building products and infrastructure materials that enhance life every day.
The alliance with Nexii supports Westlake’s longstanding commitment to sustainability and stewardship of the environment. In addition to the Nexii alliance, Westlake recently completed its acquisition of Dimex, which manufactures consumer and building products from post-industrial-recycled polymers; and Boral’s North American building products businesses in roofing; siding, trim and shutters; decorative stone; and windows.

Headquartered in Vancouver, British Columbia, Nexii has pioneered a proprietary material, Nexiite, that has comparable properties to concrete but contains no Portland cement or lime, reducing carbon emissions. Nexiite is used to create Nexii Panels that are precision manufactured at plants operated by Nexii or Nexii Certified Manufacturers, then are shipped flat-packed to site where they are rapidly assembled.

This “whole-building solution” creates disaster-resilient buildings and retrofits with up to 75 percent faster build time compared to traditional construction methods and materials. Nexii creates near-zero construction waste onsite and produces buildings that are airtight and energy-efficient, further reducing climate impacts.
