Atlantic Canada’s oldest concrete masonry producer, Shaw Brick, has solidified its partnership with CarbonCure by applying the technology across its entire product line. The company first conducted testing on an early prototype of the CarbonCure Technology in 2007.
“Shaw Brick understands that its customers are demanding more sustainable products, and we are pleased to announce that as of July 15, 2016, all of our standard concrete masonry units and architectural blocks produced in Lantz will automatically capture recycled CO2." – James Bond, General Manager of Shaw Brick
Since 2007, Shaw has been manufacturing products with CarbonCure’s technology when specified by architects, engineers or builders. The products have been featured in several high-profile projects around Atlantic Canada, including Bedford High School, Dalhousie University’s Collaborative Health Education Building, and UPEI’s School of Sustainable Design Engineering.
Local architects and engineers support Shaw’s move to produce all of its products with CarbonCure’s technology. "The decision to use CarbonCure is easy - it provides an environmental advantage without negatively impacting the material properties. I'm pleased to support the use of CarbonCure's technology in both masonry and ready mixed concrete, and will be encouraging the use of this material on future construction projects," said Malcolm Pinto, CEO of Halifax-based Pinto Engineering, and a seasoned structural engineer with more than 20 years of experience.
