Scope of Work
Libraries are known for their quiet and comfortable learning environments. Their places where people can go to focus on their studies or read a quite book. A project of the scale and size requires a building envelope specialist that understand what it means produce a quiet and air tight facility. For the Howard County Library and 50 + Center the team from Cameron Building Envelope Specialist used and insulating air barrier systems to complete the project.
Liquid applied air and moisture barrier systems are effective components in wall assemblies because they control moisture and minimize air leakage, therefore providing critical protection from moisture for water-sensitive components.
