PROJECT: Free Range Chicken Barn, Quebec
CONTRACTOR: Innovatech Group
INTEGRASPEC® SUPPLIER: Groupe DJB, Sherbrooke, Quebec
ICF CONSULTANT: Richard LeMay
FEATURES: Another beautiful “state of the art” ICF barn constructed with IntegraSpec ICF. This chicken barn was recently constructed in the province of Quebec, Canada and comfortably houses over 22,000 cage free laying hens (also referred to as “Free Range”, “Barn Laid Eggs” or “Cage Free Eggs”).
BENEFITS: The fact that “HENNIE” is comfortable in this beautiful energy efficient, clean air / well ventilated facility, she eats less to keep warm and is much calmer, healthier and produces more quality eggs. This new facility includes the latest green and energy efficient technologies; beginning with our IntegraSpec ICF wall system, including our IntegraFB under slab and footing insulation, feed and water distribution, heating & ventilation, lighting, automation, radiant concrete floor heating (which also quickly dries droppings which is later fully processed into very potent, organic fertilizer). This new green and sustainable facility is turning heads and rapidly setting new grounds within the various agricultural communities / associations; from animal caring, to harvesting & storage, food processing and conditioned food storage facilities.
“We are thrilled and extremely proud of “Hennie’s” new home. Being part of this new “Green” agricultural revolution is certainly a great privilege and reason why we get up in the morning.”
