Isola Communities Launches Partnership With HercuTech

HercuTech | August 18, 2021

Isola Communities, a premier Seattle-based, multi-family property developer, is pleased to announce a new partnership with Tempe-based HercuTech, which will ensure that HercuTech's innovative HercuWall system is utilized in Isola's upcoming Arizona build-to-rent communities.

"HercuTech is excited to be partnering with Isola Communities on their build-to-rent product. We believe HercuWall absolutely provides Isola an opportunity to differentiate themselves in a very competitive market, as it improves the building process and provides tenants a superior living experience," said HercuTech CEO, Jason Rhees.

Prior to its planned expansion into Arizona, Isola Communities began its search for development partners that exemplified Isola's commitment to sustainable design and environmental stewardship. "We were immediately impressed with HercuWall's capabilities and the positive impact that it would have on our communities," noted Isola Communities Partner, Harry Nayyar.

"HercuWall is a sustainably manufactured, R31 insulated wall system that allows for significant energy savings, sound reduction, and airtightness. This offers a healthier, more cost-effective, and highly comfortable lifestyle," added Rhees.

One of Isola's main goals for their Arizona communities has been to develop quality housing solutions that benefit each neighborhood. "With the inclusion of HercuWall in our communities, it's even easier for us to ensure that our future residents will have quiet, durable, and energy-efficient homes. We're looking forward to a long and beneficial partnership with HercuTech," said Isola Communities Partner, Jeff LePage.
