Fire Resistant 3D Cementitious sandwich panel, a building material selected to

Rebuild NorthBay, a proactive foundation, is trending in the news, most recently to celebrate the ribbon cutting for the Coffey Strong Community, and the scheduled rebuild of what will be a fire resistant Hopper Wall.


A wall that was damaged beyond repair, during a devastating fire, over 12 months ago. Unfortunately, as the years pass, this has been one of many fires in California. Additionally,  NorthBay continues to set the tone, moving forward in our new normal, with unmatched community involvement, and a stride to “Stay Strong”.

As planned, the wall rebuild will be erected using a fire resistant building material, by now you may have heard many names, in particular is this one which describes its attributes,  a “3D Cementitious sandwich panel”.   We have been building with this material for over 2 decades, and it has proven to be disaster resistant against mother natures wrath.

“There was going to be no uniformity to it,” said Jeff Okrepkie, a founder and former president of Coffey Strong. The walls amount to “a gateway to Coffey Park,” he said, and finding a single solution benefits not just the 42 property owners but the entire community. “Well said, former president, and founder of Coffey Strong, Mr. Okrepkie”

Hadrian Const. Co. is one of the contractor’s on the Hopper Wall rebuild, and this wall will be erected using, the same prefabricated fire resistant panels that Rod Hadrian has used for so many years. We were in attendance at the ribbon cutting, on November 8th, as a participant, and we noticed the commitment from the local community, each role is a valuable piece to this projects success, and we are so fortunate for the opportunity, as it is sure to be a part of our history, bookmarked as a disaster resistant way to rebuild.

We will post timeline photos, as they become available, in the mean time, please enjoy these helpful images of disaster resistant wall projects, that Hadrian Const. Co has built over the past 2 decades, using fire resistant Expanded Polystyrene Foam.
