BRAD PITT HELPED REBUILD NEW ORLEANS AFTER KATRINA

HE CHOSE NEXGEN

In 2005, Hurricane Katrina devastated one of America's oldest and most dynamic cities, New Orleans. Legendary actor and philanthropist Brad Pitt, who spent a great deal of time at his home in the city, wanted to help with its rebuilding.  In partnership with the Make It Right Foundation, Mr. Pitt designed and built a number of eco-friendly, high-efficiency homes in the historic 9th Ward, and all the lumber and panels he used in the construction was protected with NexGen.

Now more than a decade later, the homes are as beautiful, safe, and enduring as the city they reside in.

But why did Mr. Pitt insist on using NexGen?

Let's look at some different scenarios: A family has engaged a builder to create a new home for them; a developer is looking to build a 200-unit complex; a mining company needs 50 work camps; a commercial developer is planning to break ground on a 200,000 square foot center. 

Only with NexGen will the entire wood package used in these construction projects be:

- protected from fire

- protected from mould, mildew, and wood-boring insects, including all termites

- protected using only non-toxic, eco-friendly chemicals

- insured by the world's only third-party, global warranty for all of the above (yes, including fire)

Yet all this protection adds less than 1% to the overall building costs, while providing property owners with the opportunity to obtain discounts on their home insurance coverage, essentially making the product FREE ?

Why would anyone say no? At the very least, shouldn’t everyone be given the option?
