Habitat for Humanity Canada (HFHC) has entered into a partnership with insulated concrete form-designer and -manufacturer ARXX Building Products so that more families across Canada will have the opportunity to live in safe, energy-efficient and affordable homes. ARXX will provide several elements that can contribute to the success of HFHC builds, including discount pricing, training and technical support, and national distribution of ARXX ICFs to all HFHC affiliates. In addition to the energy efficiency of ARXX forms, HFHC homes built with ARXX ICF walls and foundations will provide the owners with better indoor air quality, elimination of the risk of water intrusion through the foundation walls and resulting mold, mildew and rot, as well as structural integrity.
“ARXX has worked with HFHC affiliates for years, and we’re very pleased and excited to formalize our relationship so that we can help HFHC achieve its goals in communities across Canada,” said Gael Mourant, president and CEO of ARXX. “The work that HFHC does is very important, and our products go hand in hand with their mission. “Our training program and readily available technical support helps affiliates and volunteers self-perform foundation and building work, and our discounted pricing plan and national distribution platform provides Canadian Habitat affiliates access to our products for their new home builds.”
