Innovating Construction
with 25+ Years Experience

ZS2 Technologies was founded on the premise that chemistry and sustainability-driven innovation has the opportunity to advance construction and close the gap in the industry. We believe in the implementation of prefabricated manufacturing techniques, advances in construction technology and a prioritized focus on leading-edge material science.

We lower both the embodied and operational carbon footprints of buildings in several ways:

  1. Our solutions are based on magnesium cement. This enables our materials to have  ⅓ the carbon footprint of traditional cement, without sacrificing strength and durability.
  2. Using ZS2’s prefabricated building methods results in a much more energy efficient building envelope, meaning they require less energy to heat and cool. Buildings could see as much as a 50% reduction in energy usage!
  3. Transportation and speed of construction also contribute to a lower carbon footprint. Fewer material deliveries and rapid construction means less back and forth to a construction site and a lower carbon footprint. Saving both time and money.

For example, choosing an advanced building solution like TechPanels, an entire building envelope can arrive on one or two trucks—compared to only two panels per truck with tilt-up concrete.

Our solutions are designed to adapt to most building requirements. Whether you’re planning to build traditional stick frame, tilt-up concrete, or steel frame buildings, we can work to integrate our sustainable solutions into your build. The key is involving our design team in the planning process as early as possible to optimize integration and benefits.

ZS2 Technologies is headquartered in Calgary, Alberta, Canada, where our 48,000 sq. ft. facility serves as a manufacturing hub, material science lab, and collaborative office space. In addition, we have a network of TechPartners across North America to deliver ZS2 solutions to local markets.

Regardless of your location, we can help bring sustainable building solutions to you. From the Arctic to the Bahamas both projects and partners have benefited from building with ZS2.
