Zero Energy Systems (ZES) of Coralville has received state funding to assist with the proposed construction of a 45,000 square foot manufacturing facility in the Wescor development in Coralville. The facility will be the first of its kind in the U.S. and will take approximately 12-months to complete. Facility design and planning will begin in the fourth quarter of this year and construction will start in March 2012.
ZES is a start-up company that will provide computer-automated production of a proprietary insulated concrete wall system for residential and commercial use. The product will deliver the necessary building envelope to attain net-zero energy use results while providing disaster resistance and longevity.
The project represents $7.5 million in capital investment and will create 25 jobs over the next three years, with a projected payroll threshold of 130% of Johnson County.Read the full story at www.icadgroup.com/news
