SKOKIE, IL—AZEK® Building Products, an industry leader in technologically advanced, high performance building materials, is featured on the 2017 Pacific National Exhibition (PNE) Prize Home in British Columbia. AZEK is one of the proud sponsors that provided materials for the 2017 Prize Home, a West Coast modern, ENERGY STARÒ certified, 3,100-square-foot home built by Freeport Industries. The PNE operates a charitable home lottery, the longest running lotto of its kind in North America. It benefits a variety of local, not-for-profit, programs spanning agriculture, community, and the arts.
The 2017 PNE Prize Home is designed using innovative building materials, including AZEK®Deck, to construct an aesthetically appealing home that will also stand the test of time. The home features AZEK decking in Autumn Chestnut from the Harvest Collection®, and it resists mold, mildew, moisture damage, stains, scratches and fading. This low-maintenance material, protected with a proprietary capping known as Alloy Armour Technology®, is scientifically engineered to withstand the harsh weather that affects the Canadian climate.
“We feel that it is important to give back to local communities across North America, which is why we wanted to be a part of this great cause that benefits so many local programs across British Columbia,” said Julia Fitzgerald, Chief Marketing Officer of AZEK Building Products. “AZEK decking is a great addition to this home and we are confident the new owners will enjoy its beauty and durability, no matter what the weather brings.”
The home was largely built with a modular design in the Okanagan Valley. It was then hauled, in six sections, 350 kilometers to the PNE grounds near downtown Vancouver, where it was reassembled prior to its public opening on August 19. Viewing will be ongoing through September 4. After its display period, the home will be relocated to an idyllic hillside destination with views overlooking the Okanagan Lake, in the heart of Okanagan wine country, at Naramata Bench.
“We are always excited to work with companies like AZEK which provide premium products that elevate our Prize Homes to dream home status,” said Aubrie Ederer, Gaming Assistant Manager at the Pacific National Exhibition.
