MEET OUR FOUNDER

Paul Girard Polar Maxima

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 coldes 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. 

Polar Maxima is proud to be part of it.

notre fondateur

Je suis Paul Girard. J'ai plus de 30 ans d'expérience dans les secteurs de la construction et de la fabrication. Ma plus grande satisfaction a été de fournir à mes clients des projets de construction durables et écoénergétiques avant même que cela ne devienne la norme. J'ai parlé lors de conférences telles que le Conseil du bâtiment durable du Canada, Indigenous Housing Solutions, ECOSPHERE, ainsi que devant l'Agence autrichienne de promotion de la recherche sur la façon de construire des performances élevées dans les climats froids.

J'ai lancé Polar Maxima pour atteindre un objectif: rendre mon expertise dans les bâtiments écoénergétiques accessible et disponible à tous. De cette manière, chacun peut s'attaquer avec succès à son propre projet de construction résidentielle ou commerciale en kit, performant et durable. Ensemble, nous avons le pouvoir de réduire et d'éliminer notre empreinte carbone.

Polar Maxima est fier d'en faire partie.

Feel more comfortable with a super-insulated building envelope that reduces drafts and creates a consistent indoor temperature.

REDUCED
NOISE

Increased insulation levels and quality windows help reduce sound transmission from the outside for added comfort inside.

REDUCED POLLUTION

 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.

NATURAL
LIGHT

Making effective use of daylight can provide a more pleasing indoor environment while further reducing your energy bills.

INCREASED
RE-SALE VALUE

High performance homes tend to sell more quickly and for more money than homes built according to minimum standards.

LONG LASTING
PROTECTION

 High quality systems last longer and save money on operations and maintenance. Plus, less condensation and no mildew.

BUILT FOR THE FUTURE
