ZS2 Technologies, a Calgary-based building material technology company is expanding into Alaska thanks to a partnership with Paragon Construction Solutions.

Paragon Construction Solutions, an Alaska Native and women owned business has distinguished itself as a leader in prefab construction since 2005.  Founders Lynn Barrett and Ken Prestegard have worked on design and construction projects for more than thirty-five years. Paragon provides prefab sustainable building exteriors for commercial, residential, agriculture and cannabis structures. Paragon is now the ZS2 Technologies TechPartner for Alaska, Washington, and Oregon.

“We’re constantly looking for the best partners to bring the absolute latest in sustainable building technology to Alaskans and ZS2 Technologies stands out as the leader in magnesium-based building materials and prefabricated building panels,” says Lynn Barrett, co-owner of Paragon Construction Solutions. “They’re dedication to constant research and development, as well as rigorous testing and quality control really drew us to the team at ZS2, and we’re incredibly excited to be bringing their building technology to Alaska.”

ZS2 Technologies launched in March 2020 as a collaboration between prefab building industry veteran Scott Jenkins and PhD chemist Dr. Doug Brown with the goal to accelerate the adoption of alternative building materials that are stronger, safer, and healthier for people and the planet. Their marquee offerings include a magnesium oxysulfate cement board (TechBoard) that are integrated into structurally insulated panels (TechPanels).

“The ideology of Lynn and the team at Paragon is a natural fit for us at ZS2, and Alaska is the ideal place to implement the technologies we’re developing,” says Scott Jenkins, CEO at ZS2 Technologies. “This is an opportunity to bring advanced, environmentally sustainable building technologies to Alaska that stand up to the extreme climate conditions, as well as protect the environment that Alaskans cherish.”
