Decarbonizing the Construction Industry, One Project at a Time.

ZS2 partners with forward thinking leaders in the building industry who bring innovative construction and building technologies to their local and industry specific markets.

TechPartners are critical to our future success and enable cross functional-collaboration on world class projects across North America. Everyone knows it takes a village, but we’re lucky enough to have the best village. 

From the Arctic to the Caribbean, we’ve got boots on the ground and a collection of projects that speak for themselves!

SAIT – Nunavut, CA | Arctic Cultural Centre 

This project was delivered by a Canadian icebreaker supply ship to Cambridge Bay, Nunavut (Ikaluktuuttiak) late this summer. ZS2 teamed up with the Southern Alberta Institute of Technology to design a new standard for arctic construction that is highly energy efficient and durable. The new cultural centre has TechPanel walls, floor, and roof with solar panels. The building’s envelope is fully complete and only interior finishings remain.

Tech Build Innovations – Texas, US | 5 Residential 3 Storey Homes

The superstructure on the first of five residential projects has been completed! Progress is well underway on the second house. In a high wind and hurricane zone these three-storey infill homes have been engineered to be more resilient and energy efficient.

Empower Projects – Pine Bay Grand Bahama, BHS | Category 5 Hurricane Home

Finishing touches are being put on this modern, single family home that arrived by a single 40 ft sea can from our TechCentre in Calgary. After receiving drawings, this project only took 66 days from design to construction, with TechPanels installed in less than 4 days!

Improve Group – New Mexico, US | Mixed-Use Community Facilty 

Crews are hard at work on this community facility in Albuquerque, New Mexico. Coming in at 13,500 sqft, this project uses the largest quantity of TechPanels for a singular build to date. Improve Group was one of ZS2’s first TechPartners and this is our third project with their team!
