Developers Break Ground On the Boro Largest Multi-Cultural Development Center In the United States
The Boro, is the newest multi-cultural community to come to Tysons Corner, Virginia. It contains retail, residential, and commercial office space. It will take nearly three years to build the 3.5 million square foot community. The first phase of construction began on the Boro in 2016 and costs approximately $800 million dollars to build. In fact, there will be over 1,500 apartment units available for purchase at the Boro. As a matter of fact, the retail space at the Boro also includes a Whole Foods Market for residents living in the area to do their grocery shopping.
Scope of Work
Our team of building scientist are installing an air barrier system
. An air barrier is a system that’s actually designed and constructed to control air flow between a conditioned space and an unconditioned space. Consequently, air barrier systems solve common building environment problems. In fact, an air barrier creates a seamless moisture barrier with no tears, holes or “mis-lapped” joints, effectively blocking air leakage, and reducing energy costs and the risk of condensation in the wall. Air barriers also protects sheathing and rough openings from weather damage during and after construction. Finally, air barriers provide the opportunity for pressure-equalized or pressure-moderated wall design. This minimizes the risk of rainwater penetrating through any type of wall assembly.
