Construction Pioneer Awards

The Construction Pioneer AwardsTM recognizes extraordinary achievements in the field of Energy Efficient construction using Legalett’s high performance building envelope solutions, including Legalett's GEO-Passive Super Insulating Slab on Grade Foundations, ThermalWall PH Exterior Wall Insulation and ThermaSill Insulated Threshold Solution.



Energy Efficient Construction is Recognized


In 2019 Legalett introduced the Construction Pioneer AwardsTM to recognize the outstanding use of our products and services in projects of influence in the market place.


The individual or company that receives this award will have moved beyond the boundaries of the standard building code and been the first to successfully use cutting edge innovative equipment, building materials or building systems in their region and conform to either LEED, Passive House PH, Net Zero Energy NZE, R-2000 or similar high-performance standard.


They would have freely shared their experience with anyone that asked and the project will have been so successful that others would follow in their path to build projects of a similar type, having learned from the experiences of the “Construction Pioneer”.


Recipients of the Construction Pioneer AwardsTM receive a limited edition print created by Jenny Kastner.
