What if Quick-Serve didn't just apply to fast-food orders?

Project at a Glance

The restaurant benefits from a Nexii commercial retail solution featuring a high-performance building envelope in ways that are both practical and transformational.​

Tools_Icon

Quick assembly

Constructed on site in less than two weeks. This accelerated standard build times by between 50% - 75% (1).

Near Zero On Site Waste

Nexii products are manufactured offsite and assembled on site, enabling Nexii to eliminate near all waste from the build.

Nexii partners with Popeyes® to deliver sustainable new restaurant 

Nexii constructed the new restaurant located in Abbotsford, British Columbia in less than two weeks, supporting the Popeyes brand’s rapid growth and expansion in Canada. Popeyes now has 12 restaurants in the province, and the new restaurant in Abbotsford is the brand’s first location constructed using building materials and technologies that are significantly more sustainable than those used in traditional construction.

Nexii’s high-performance green building products are precision manufactured in plants to project specifications using 3D software. This process means that Nexii panels are able to fit together like jigsaw pieces onsite, accelerating standard build times by between 50% – 75%[1]. This process – where Nexii products are manufactured offsite and assembled on site – enables Nexii to eliminate almost all onsite construction waste.

Nexii anticipates that its technology will reduce the Popeyes restaurant’s operational building carbon emissions by approximately 30%[2] as a result of two key innovations: its choice of building material and assembly process. Nexii’s proprietary material Nexiite, used within its building panels, is more thermally efficient and less carbon-intensive than concrete. When assembled, the Nexii panels create an airtight building envelope. Together, this markedly improves a building’s energy efficiency and, in turn, significantly lowers the greenhouse gas emissions for ongoing building operation.
