During an October 4 open house that drew 500 students, architects and engineers to its Edmonton precast plant, Lafarge announced participation in a local Habitat for Humanity NetZero energy duplex project. The producer will continue to spotlight the project—the first of its kind in Canada—on October 6, opening its Calgary precast operation to an anticipated 700 community and construction industry guests. Both events are timed around the Canadian Precast/Prestressed Concrete Institute-designated National Precast Day, now in its 13th year and observed in plants across the provinces the first week of October.
