BuildBlock Announces Launch of 12th Manufacturing Facility

(Oklahoma City, OK, May 9, 2008) – BuildBlock® Building Systems is pleased to announce its
expansion into the state of Minnesota, bringing their total number of manufacturing facilities to
an even dozen. BuildBlock now has more manufacturing facility locations than any other ICF
manufacturer in North America. “From our inception, it’s been a part of our master plan to have
local manufacturing facilities across the country” said BuildBlock CEO Mike Garrett. “Today’s
unprecedented fuel costs make this tremendous benefit to our customers a necessity. We
continue to invest in manufacturing in order to save our customers on their freight expenses.”

In June, BuildBlock will begin manufacturing their state-of-the-art BuildBlock® Insulating
Concrete Forms (ICFs) at Plymouth Foam located in Becker, Minnesota, about 50 miles
northwest of Minneapolis/St. Paul.

“Minnesota has the highest ICF sales in the country,” Garrett said. “In the past, freight costs have
impacted our ability to be truly competitive in this market. Our new facility in Becker will
make BuildBlock more competitive, as well as affordable and convenient for our customers.”

Just last month BuildBlock announced it is partnering with Aptco, LLC to manufacture
BuildBlock ICFs in McFarland, California. BuildBlock expects to begin accepting orders for the
California facility in July. Other BuildBlock manufacturing facilities are located in Alabama,
Colorado, Florida, Idaho (Jerome and Post Falls), Indiana, Massachusetts, Missouri, Utah, and
