ABOUT Polar Maxima
COMFORT & SAFETY in ALL CLIMATES
Polar Maxima offers high performance kit building structures and an exterior insulation system,
designed even for the coldest climates.
OUR CORE VALUES
Our standards, products and systems are designed to ensure future generations will enjoy the same environmental benefits as we do.
Constantly incorporating the newest technology and developing our own eco-responsible products allow us to build sustainably and efficiently year after year.
Streamlining our building process, eliminating wastes and closely monitoring the quality of our supply is the key to our success in lowering the cost of environmental sustainability.
Polar Maxima emerged from a vision:
A world where you can build a high performance, low maintaince and healthy kit building structures anywhere you desire to live, even in the most rural, isolated and northern communities, and then pass it on to future generations.
MEET OUR FOUNDER
My name is Paul Girard. I have over 30 years of experience in the construction and manufacturing industries. My greatest satisfaction has been providing my clients with long-lasting, energy efficient building projects even before it was the standard. I’ve spoken at conferences like the Canada Green Building Council’s, Indigenous Housing Solutions, ECOSPHERE, as well as before the Austrian Research Promotion Agency about how to build high performance in the coldest climates.
I started Polar Maxima to accomplish one goal: to make my expertise in energy efficient buildings accessible and available at all. In this way, anyone can tackle with great success their own high-performing and sustainable residential or commercial kit building project. Together, we have the power to reduce and eliminate our carbon footprint.
BENEFITS OF POLAR MAXIMA HOMES
LOWER ENERGY BILLS
Save money on heating and cooling bills, and protect yourself from inevitable future increases in energy prices.
A healthier indoor environment due to better air quality and use of materials and finishes without volatile organic compounds.
Feel more comfortable with a super-insulated building envelope that reduces drafts and creates a consistent indoor temperature.
Increased insulation levels and quality windows help reduce sound transmission from the outside for added comfort inside.
We use certified and long-lasting green materials that help lower harmful greenhouse gas emissions and reduce your carbon footprint. Plus, we install systems that provide a safe and healthy environment in all weather conditions.
DURABILITY & RESILIENCE
More solid, waterproof and air tight structures protect better in severe weather. Super-insulation make it easier for small solar or wind systems to protect and maintain indoor comfort during power outages.
Making effective use of daylight can provide a more pleasing indoor environment while further reducing your energy bills.
High performance homes tend to sell more quickly and for more money than homes built according to minimum standards.
High quality systems last longer and save money on operations and maintenance. Plus, less condensation and no mildew.
BUILT FOR THE FUTURE
Energy efficient buildings offer greater protection against the unavoidable rising cost of energy, carbon taxes and future upgrades.
