Going green with an internationally known coffee giant

Reducing the environmental impact of buildings – and supporting organizations to meet their corporate sustainability goals –  is exactly what gets our team excited, so we were honoured to provide this airtight, high-performance envelope and structural solution for a groundbreaking new Starbucks cafe.

Starbucks Canada aspired to operate more eco-friendly stores under its global sustainability strategy and turned to Nexii to maintain brand standards while achieving revolutionary new standards in sustainable construction and operational performance.​

Located in Abbotsford, BC, this first-of-its-kind Starbucks café was completed in December 2020 using our revolutionary green construction technology, reducing the store’s carbon emissions by 43%.​

Thinking beyond the build with long-term sustainable benefits

Nexii’s high-performance envelope and structural solution minimize the building’s carbon emissions through three key innovations: our choice of building material, our design of high-performance panels, and our assembly process. Nexii’s proprietary material, Nexiite, is more thermally efficient and less carbon-intensive than concrete. Nexii panels provide an airtight building envelope that markedly improves a building’s energy efficiency and, in turn, significantly lowers greenhouse gas emissions for ongoing building operations.

Nexii panels are precision manufactured in a modern facility under strict ISO 9001 quality controls and leave the fabrication plant fully finished to the architect’s specifications to maintain brand standards and optimize construction duration and efficiency. The pre-finished Nexii panels forming this cafe’s wall and roof were then assembled in just six days.​

Nexii is proud to have worked on this first-of-its-kind sustainably built Starbucks cafe.
