LOUISVILLE, Ky. — Nexii Building Solutions Inc. and Buffalo Construction Inc. have announced a partnership to bring a green manufacturing plant to the Louisville area. The plant will create hundreds of new green jobs locally and will produce sustainable building and retrofit products for projects across the southern and eastern United States.
As the newest Nexii Certified Manufacturer (NCM), Buffalo Construction will be the local partner and operator of the new Kentucky plant. However, as part of the NCM program, Buffalo has sights to potentially expand and launch additional green manufacturing plants in other U.S. regions in the future and is provided access to Nexii’s innovative building systems and proprietary building material, Nexiite. Nexiite is a proprietary blend of readily available ingredients, with no ILFI Red List toxic substances. It has comparable properties to concrete but contains no Portland cement or lime, significantly reducing end-to-end carbon emissions.
Nexiite is used to create Nexii Panels for use in commercial, industrial, and residential buildings. NCMs manufacture panels that are flat packed and transported directly to the site where they are bolted together and rapidly assembled. This cost-effective building solution creates sustainable, disaster-resilient buildings with reduced emissions, 75% shorter build times, and near-zero on-site waste.
Buffalo Construction is one of the largest commercial construction companies in the region, with a portfolio of projects and licensures spanning 49 states and client partners including Chick-fil-A, Choice Hotels, Love’s Travel Stops, Texas Roadhouse, and University of Louisville.
To date, Nexii Panels have been used in industrial, commercial rental units, single-story commercial buildings, and retrofit projects, as well as high-performance envelope systems and residential buildings. Recent projects include an energy-saving exterior building envelope for a Courtyard Marriott; a first-of-its-kind sustainably built Starbucks, constructed in six days and reducing the store’s emissions by 30%; and projects for clients including Popeyes and A&W Restaurants.
Nexii’s growth plans have recently been bolstered by several high-profile partnerships—including naming Honeywell as its exclusive buildings technologies supplier and collaborating with JLL to help identify additional NCMs across North America.
