Walls & Ceilings

Calacci Construction’s new, 15,800-square-foot office building’s architecture combines a glass curtain wall with punched window masonry, a tight seal required a bit of precision in materials and workmanship.  To meet the new UBC building code, walls have to have a complete thermal break. Calacci chose Foam-Control PLUS+ 250 scored architectural insulation because the product is available in a wide range of thicknesses to fill in around the building’s complex architectural detailing...

Rocky Mountain Construction

Snowbird Ski Resort’s Hidden Peak guest services center faced unusual design challenges due to its mountaintop location.  The adjacent tram’s foundation posed possible vulnerability to backfilling with excavated soil which would potentially expose the foundation’s walls to lateral pressures.  Designers developed a structural barrier between the foundation and the mountain by filling the void with EPS Geofoam...

Modern Contractor Solutions

The scope of work was to replace a box culvert crossing beneath 63rd Street at Highway 83 in Willowbrook, IL that was used to move water runoff from the golf course to a small pond on the south side of the road. Anselmo Presisto, P.E., the project manager with Greco Construction, was a bit surprised to see a line item for a product he’d never used before as Greco was putting their bid together. Foam-Control® expanded polystyrene (EPS) geofoam, was specified as a structural fill to stabilize the area between the pond and the road...

    Building A Legacy

    Hidden Peak at 11,000 feet is where Richard “Dick” Bass envisioned The Summit, a high-altitude guest services center and mountain restaurant located at the Snowbird Ski & Summer Resort, Utah.  During the first season of construction, excavation for the new foundation stretched across the site to the tram structure’s existing foundation wall on the edge of the mountain. Built some 43 years earlier designers knew the tram’s foundation represented a possible vulnerability. Backfilling with the excavated soil would potentially expose the foundation’s walls to lateral pressures caused by natural soil resettling after construction. A structural barrier was developed between the foundation and the mountain by filling the void with EPS Geofoam blocks.

    Old School Construction, New School Materials

    Thinking beyond initial costs, Calacci Construction was interested in building strategies that would help reduce operating expenses during Iowa’s hot summers and cold winters.  The Calacci Construction building maintains a steady 57 or 58 degrees, circulating cooler air in summer and warmer air in winter. Along with a heat pump, the new building also benefits from a high performance thermal envelope, which helps maintain constant temperatures despite external conditions.  To meet the new UBC Building code walls have to have a complete thermal break, requiring the use of masonry cavity insulation. ACH Foam Technologies was chosen for several reasons.  Proximity to the project was only about 30 miles, but most importantly the products were available in a wide range of thicknesses, which helped fill in around complex architectural detailing.
