PLAEX Building Systems is a pioneering company committed to manufacturing environmentally responsible, simple and innovative building materials made from currently unused and underused waste streams. We create eco-friendly, sustainable modular building solutions that will withstand storms, floods, earthquakes, and insects; all while reducing your carbon footprint and saving you time, labour, and energy costs.
Through our innovative composite we are able to process a wide range of difficult-to-recycle thermal plastic waste, including a special mix of agricultural, marine and municipal plastic waste and dry aggregates such as plaster, concrete, brick, and glass. We turn all of this into a valuable, durable, long lasting, fully interlocking building system. Our system can be used and reused in a wide range of low-rise construction applications from flood walls and retaining walls, to sheds, and more, with residential certification on the horizon. This system simultaneously creates a value-added solution to massive amounts of waste while simplifying and streamlining the entire building process, saving contractors and customers time and money, while being environmentally responsible.
PLAEX Building systems Inc. was founded in February 2020 by Dustin Bowers. Dustin comes from a long line of tradesmen and has over 18 years experience in the building industry. He began working on the idea for PLAEX shortly after the birth of his first child in 2017, while working as a Project Manager in BC. Over the next few years he combined his passion for the environment with his many years of experience and connections in the field, to develop this amazing new composite, and highly versatile, first in the world, Brick & Panel system. Finally: a truly scalable solution to waste that makes use of plastic’s best properties. We are turning a problem into a strength. Join us as we build a better future from yesterdays waste!
