50th Parallel Wall

A company that meets the demand for high energy performance.

MCG Houses was created to address a shortfall pertaining to high-quality modular housing for residents of Quebec’s northernmost regions.

Equipped with additional insulating layers, this wall is specially designed to counter the effects resulting from the very harsh climate of the regions located around the 50th parallel. It provides greater comfort, reduces energy consumption, and contributes to the long-term preservation of the quality of your home.
