Toronto, Ontario – July 27, 2021- Universal PropTech Inc. (TSXV: UPI | OTCQB: UPIPF | FSE: 8LH) (“UPI” or the “Company“) is pleased to announce that the Company has signed a Partnership Agreement (“Agreement”) with Laken & Associates Inc. o/a Termobuild (“Termobuild”) to incorporate the use of Termobuild value engineering and hollow core concrete technology to develop carbon neutral building solutions for real estate developers and builders in Canada.
“As Universal PropTech embarks on developing energy resources, it is key to incorporate carbon neutral building solutions like Termobuild and their hollow core concrete technology,” stated Frank Carnevale, Chief Growth Officer, Universal PropTech Inc. “We are driving innovation and our ability to finance solutions to create a significant barrier to entry for competitors.”
“UPI collaboration with Termobuild will lead to higher performance and lower costs from the start,” commented Jack Laken, President of Termobuild. “If one smart building, as dispatchable asset, can impact the load on the energy grid and the lives of end users who experience life inside the building, then a block of connected smart buildings is the ultimate goal toward a more efficient, clean and mindful future of construction.”
Termobuild has installed systems in over 2.0 million square feet, in Canada and United States. Two of Termobuild’s schools were validated by NRCan (Natural Resources Canada) as best performing sustainable schools in Canada. Recently, Termobuild had a 675.000 square foot Net Positive Development in South Carolina, USA, featured in NREL Guide to Net Zero.
As the Company and its consortium of engineering design firms approach prospects to develop alternative energy systems and grow its Energy Resources division, they will include Termobuild within its technology mix to produce carbon net zero buildings. In instances where Termobuild isn’t being sold indirectly via the Company, the Agreement includes a referral fee arrangement with Termobuild for sales.
Additionally, both the Company and Termobuild are working together to integrate the Company’s building automation systems with the ability for hollow core concrete technology to store thermal loads for electricity peak shaving strategies.
Connection to Forward Looking Guidance
Consistent with the corporate second half 2021 guidance reported on June 30 2021, the Agreement with Termobuild enables the Company to deliver on strategic targets:
- Round out additional capabilities to deliver healthy buildings, such as building automation, building performance, indoor air quality and energy resources;
- Expand our share of “the wallet” from existing and new clients by offering additional products and solutions; and
- Developing alternate asset class offering with financing and/or owning energy assets.
