"Construction is a matter of optimism; as it's a matter of facing the future with confidence."

01 The Challenges

Positive Forecasts but New and Old Issues Persist

Industry experts project commercial building construction spending to continue increasing through 2023. Despite this encouraging news, builders face both old and new challenges that each have the potential to significantly impact their ability to complete projects. Some of these issues include: 

  • Decreases in productivity 
  • A deficit in available skilled labor 
  • Increases in the costs of materials 
  • Evolving regulatory requirements & restrictions 
  • Climate change-related safety and insurance concerns 
  • Growing demand for eco-friendly and energy-efficient buildings 

Building for tomorrow means being able to implement innovative products and methods that address the deficiencies found in traditional onsite building techniques and materials. 

02 Success Outcomes

Key Breakthroughs That Drive Building Success

Commercial builders now have new building products that enable them to not only meet demand but construct high-quality, high-performance buildings with less labor, time, and cost; robust buildings that are energy efficient and environmentally friendly.  

There are new fire, water, storm, and impact resistant sheathing and flooring materials that reduce the amount of damage that occurs in disaster events.  

Builders can leverage innovation to build best-in-class commercial buildings that help their clients realize favorable short- and long-term returns on their investment.

Commercial builders can use NEXGEN MgO boards to design custom fire, sound, and strength-rated assemblies that outperform assemblies that solely rely on traditional building materials. Additionally, manufactured Structural Insulated Panels (SIPs) built with NEXGEN MgO boards dramatically accelerate build times, as shown in this warehouse construction video, and reduce labor costs by 55% when compared to conventional building materials and processes.

In the United States, NEXGEN MgO has passed code in counties with some of the highest standards in code enforcement. 


06 FAQS and Objections

FAQ Sub Title

You will always have questions when investigating a new innovative building material like NEXGEN MgO boards.  Here are some of the most Frequently Asked Questions from Home Builders. 

What are the downsides of MgO?

MgO is a high-performance building material that has a plethora of advantages; however, some aspects might be considered "downsides," such as how MgO boards are heavier and use stainless steel fasteners when compared to plywood and drywall. Despite these differences, the three materials have the same installation process. 

Will it cost more to build high performance?

MgO is slightly more expensive than legacy sheeting and underlayment. Still, the savings in construction time, insurance, energy, and maintenance costs can more than compensate for the materials needed to deliver a high-performance building. 

Why haven’t I heard of MgO before?

Building with MgO is nothing new. The Great Wall of China is built with MgO. This material, however, wasn't readily available in the USA until recently. Since most builders haven't had access to this product, there is little public knowledge about MgO and its benefits.

Why should we choose NEXGEN?

We enable our clients to build high-performance homes with materials that yield greater health, safety, long-term financial savings, energy savings, and sustainability.
