Our Services

With increasing energy efficiency targets in North American building codes and legislation calling for decreased CO2 emissions, designers are under increased pressure to push the boundaries of creativity and innovation.

ROXUL Building Science was established to provide architects, designers and specifiers with the tools and services to unlock the energy saving potential of your building design, reaching far beyond insulation. The Building Science team believes that design freedom goes hand-in-hand with sustainability, energy efficiency, durability, resiliency and constructability; therefore, it is essential that these factors are considered and incorporated in all stages of your project.

Our North American Building Science team is part of a larger global network, allowing us to utilize international best practice, innovation and design solutions.  We combine this knowledge with local expertise to offer high-quality tools, training and tailored advisory services relevant to the North American market.

Whether new construction or retrofit, ROXUL Building Science is committed in assisting you to achieve the highest performance without sacrificing other design priorities by offering building science expertise and services.
