Autoclaved Aerated Concrete

AAC Manufacturing &
Development in Canada

The potential for AAC technology use in North America and South America building sectors is built on a century worth of building projects in Europe. AAC technology compliments current and traditional building methods and invites a sustainable alternative into the construction value chain.
Rocksolid will be the first AAC manufacturing facility in Canada. A flagship facility is being considered for Alberta, and when operational, will produce enough sustainable material for the construction of more than 1500 Net Zero housing units every year.
Operations include future plans to export to the USA and expand production through branch manufacturing facilities where raw material sources are located. In the interim, we have agreements with similar facilities in North America and globally enabling us to supply building contractors across Canada.


Accelerating Net Zero

AAC (Autoclaved Aerated Concrete) is an innovative building material that has the potential to revolutionize the construction industry. AAC has numerous advantages for Net Zero building construction, such as faster installation, higher insulation values, improved air quality, and greater fire resistance. Additionally, by using AAC, designers and contractors can greatly reduce their carbon footprint, as AAC is made from natural and recycled materials, and has a much lower embodied energy than other traditional materials. With its superior energy efficiency and sustainability, AAC is quickly becoming the preferred building material for Net Zero construction projects.


Our Mission & Vision

Rocksolid Building Products is an Alberta-base distributor and manufacturer introducing a new generation of resource-efficient building materials and construction methods to Canada and the Americas.

Our reason for being is simple: To provide the future materials and technologies necessary to build safe, affordable, and lasting housing and buildings for all communities.

The Rocksolid mission is to supply the long-time proven, rapidly scalable Autoclaved Aerated Concrete (AAC) to the Canadian residential, commercial, and industrial construction sectors.

What Makes it Better

Features of Autoclaved Aerated Concrete

Fast construction
Looking for a competitive advantage? Using AAC can reduce your construction by up to 40% or more. The variety of block and panel sizes minimizes the number of joints in wall masonry construction, and due to the nature of AAC, wall sections are typically less complex.  AAC's precise product accuracy also contributes to reduced construction time.  As well, the weight of blocks allow for easier movement, placement, and overall installation. 
Energy saving
AAC is energy efficient over its whole lifecycle.  Its production requires less energy than other construction materials and its lightweight nature saves energy in transportation.  The monolithic features of AAC create a tight building envelope where very little heat and air conditioning is lost.  Creating a NET ZERO building envelope is considerably easier and more effective when using AAC.
Fire Resistant
Since AAC is composed of non-combustible materials, it renders a building highly resistant to fire (up to 1600C ), and depending on the thickness of the material used AAC can withstand 2-6+ hours of direct fire exposure without failing.
Unused AAC materials can be returned to a manufacturing plant for reuse.  Waste material can also be used for things like carvings (sculptures), decorative purposes (such as planters), soil amendment, and even cat litter. 

Industry Traction

AAC Training & Education

Early on, Rocksolid recognized that training a talent pool in new building technologies would be critical for industry adoption and success. We have partnered with Portage College to develop a training program, and in March 2021, the government of Alberta provided funding to support the development and piloting of a four-part AAC micro credential program.
