Prevail Solutions Inc. is a construction company based out of Castlegar, British Columbia focusing on highly efficient new construction projects. Jake McFaddin and his team at Prevail Solutions have been a strong advocate of ICE Panels for a few years now, with many successful ICE Panel projects under their belt.
Becoming frustrated with the multi-layer building envelope system for the BC step code, Jake knew there had to be a better solution. After completing extensive research, Jake discovered ICE Panels, and found that they provided the results he needed to meet the requirements of the BC Energy Step Code. Jake was impressed with the ICE Panel specifications right from the start. “ICE Panels and their continuous envelope provided us with the results we needed to set the quality standards that we wanted for our company”.
“In the province of British Columbia we have to adhere to the Step Codes, so the main benefit of Greenstone’s ICE Panels is that they come Step 5 ready.” — Jake McFaddin, Prevail Solutions Inc.
Jake strongly believes that ICE Panels are the perfect building product for large scale multi-unit projects for a number of reasons. The main reason being the difference in air flow and exchange rates happening throughout the building. The performance of the building’s envelope is vital to maintaining a high efficiency value for the overall building. In addition to the high efficiency, multi-unit builders and developers choosing to build with ICE Panels can get projects framed much faster, allowing them to complete more projects in less time than compared to traditional building methods.
Another one of the main benefits of ICE Panels are the airtightness scores. By choosing ICE Panels, Prevail Solutions is confident that the airtightness will be low, regularly seeing air exchanges come in under 0.5 ACH, which is not easy to accomplish with traditional framing methods.
The team at Prevail takes pride in the fact that their ICE Panel homes are consuming 90% less energy compared to a conventional wood-framed home. They are able to provide their customers with energy efficient homes that offer their customers healthy living spaces, consistent interior temperatures, and reduced utility costs.
