The NüBuild Vision
Disrupting Technology with Construction
Build smarter, faster, to a higher standard for less
The NüBuild vision is nothing less than a complete transformation of the building construction industry. Using the most advanced automation technologies available today, NüBuild’s state-of-the-art manufacturing plant will provide ready-to-assemble, modular, prefabricated materials, products, and complete systems for any home or multi-unit building.
Everything is customized to your design specs and manufactured to the highest energy and construction standards in a controlled environment.
Saving labour costs as well as the environment, construction quality will exceed the Ontario Building Code. Projects will be completed in weeks rather than months. You will be significantly more profitable. Your clients will be thrilled.
Faster Project Completion Time
Designing and Building for the 21st Century
Residential and commercial buildings are still built in a field as they have been for hundreds of years. NüBuild finally brings the building construction industry into the 21st Century. Instead of working with separate components, materials, and products that are individually and inefficiently delivered to a field, as they have been for centuries, NüBuild delivers prefabricated, ready-to-assemble modular systems. Exposure to elements – rain, snow, wind, extreme heat or cold – is minimized, ensuring healthier living and work environments as well as a higher quality product.
Here are some of the key benefits that NüBuild offers:
Higher Build Quality
Everything is manufactured to a consistent standard in a strictly controlled environment, ensuring no materials are exposed to the environments
Reduced Construction Time
Modular building projects can be completed 30-70% quicker than traditional construction methods. By choosing to build modular, the indoor construction process can take place alongside site and foundations work, without the need for weather delays
Reduced Waste & Emissions
Materials are recycled rather than going to the landfill, resulting in waste reductions of up to 96%
Leading edge robotic and automated systems reduce overhead labour costs and speed up time to revenue for investors
Automated Production Lines
A 250,000 sq. ft. state-of-the-art manufacturing facility with leading edge robotic and automated systems is planned for the Ottawa region on 25 acres. Our facility will automate many aspects of the construction process including:
Automated wood frame and wall systems integrated with an automated window & door line
Automated cabinetry and finish areas – with unlimited customization options
Automated roof truss lines
Individual components and systems include:
Wall Systems – prewired for lighting, outlets, insulated to Net Zero standards and ready for exterior finishes
Floor and ceiling systems with electrical wiring and plumbing fixtures pre-installed
Cross-Laminated Timber Structural Systems – environmentally friendly using high performance materials and technology
Floor and roof systems
Ceiling and wall systems
Turnkey kitchen and bathroom packages with cabinetry, countertops, and all hardware – ideal for multi-unit buildings
We expect to break ground by Q2, 2022.
“You wouldn’t build your car or a computer in a field. It’s time to bring the same time saving, cost slashing, quality enhancing manufacturing process to building construction.”
Overview & Quick Facts
Planned to be approximately 225,000 sq. ft. on 59 acres in the Ottawa, ON area. Slated for completion and production-ready by Q4 2022.
Pre-manufactured floors, roof, and wall systems with windows and all electrical, and insulated to NetZero Certification Standards, with exterior finishing.
Dramatically reduce costs using repeatable systems for wall and floor panels, complete with customizable kitchen and bathroom packages.
Engineered to Net Zero
Fully-integrated delivery of every product and service necessary to design and build the highest quality buildings.
Light Gauge Steel Systems, Wood Components for roof truss assemblies, floor systems, interior wall panels, exterior walls, utility walls and more.
Everything is manufactured to a consistent, higher standard in a controlled environment ensuring systems are not exposed to rain, snow, dampness, extreme heat or cold.
Reduce your costs and ensure the highest levels of precision and product quality with IoT, precision tools and leading-edge robotic manufacturing technologies.
Ready for Assembly
Everything will be finished to the furthest level of completeness in our factory and transported in 4 to 6 trucks, ready for assembly on site in as little as 6 weeks for a new home.
Building and Technology Partners
NüBuild is currently formalizing strategic partnerships with robotic and machining manufacturers and is already accepting advance build orders from leading developers.
Customized Turnkey Solutions for Residential and Commercial Buildings Including:
Single storey to 5 storey housing
Bungalows, two-storey, luxury estate homes
Walk-ups, condominium complexes, apartments
Multi-unit, multi-floor nursing homes, assisted living facilities, senior’s homes and retirement communities
Office buildings, retail buildings, convenience stores
Saving The Environment
While modular building has clear benefits in terms of worker safety, site efficiency and construction costs, there are also impressive environmental benefits. The benefits of prefabricated construction begin in the factory, continue on to the building site and last through the lifetime of the building.
A United Nations report found that 39 percent of global carbon emissions result from the construction field, and much of that is the result of inefficient transportation of labor, equipment and materials. By reducing overall transportation needs and optimizing the delivery of modules, modular construction is able to reduce total deliveries to building sites by 90 percent, which has an enormous effect on total emissions.
Decreased Energy Consumption During Construction
Since construction happens in a controlled factory setting rather than on site, overall energy use is decreased with modular construction technology. During construction, energy usage is optimized using machine learning to create an environmentally sound building process. Additionally, on-site energy expenditures are significantly lower, as construction times are substantially decreased with modular buildings.
Reduced Construction Waste
Because multiple modules are being constructed simultaneously, materials that would be discarded on a normal construction site can be reused for other projects in a modular construction facility. Traditional construction generates around 4 million tons of debris every year, and reducing this amount would have huge environmental benefits.
To Net Zero and Beyond!
If you’re a business, government or institution working towards net zero emissions, we can help.
The public discourse is shifting. More and more corporate leaders and governments are committing to reduced, net-zero, or even net negative emissions. If your organization is among those leading on climate change, or evaluating options, we can help.
Our automated modular technology provides a range of affordable building solutions that can help your business meet critical emissions reductions targets. We can work with you to create a custom set of solutions for your sustainability and net zero plans.
NüBuild is a wholly Canadian owned company dedicated to bringing these building efficiencies to the construction industry. Through partnerships with leading technology providers and over 60 years of construction experience, NüBuild will help transform how residential and commercial buildings are designed and built.
If you are an investor, builder, developer or industry leader, we are interested in hearing from you.
