Calvin Rodwell, a New Elementary School Coming to Howard Park
Calvin M. Rodwell will accept students from Kindergarten to 8th grade. The new design separates the building into Activities and Academic zones to allow for secure control of building after hours. In addition to classrooms, it will have rooms dedicated specifically to extra curricular activities and collaborative learning. Its design will maximize natural daylight to encourage learning and interaction.
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.
