Cameron BES Adds Fluid Applied Air Barriers To Baltimore City School Renovation ProjectThe Baltimore City School Officials approved a budget allowing Forest Park High School to begin immediate renovations and construction of a two story addition. The project and planning committee has selected general Contractor HESS Construction to oversee construction of the project. School officials have reportedly said that there’s significant structural damage to the buildings exterior, and that repairs have already begun. The High School was originally built in 1981, but because of a growing student population the new addition is desperately needed. Construction crews broke ground on the new 2,200- square foot addition earlier this year. The new addition is expected to be a two-story building that includes an auxiliary gym, black box theater, community room, art classroom, supplemental storage areas and new restrooms.
Scope of WorkCameron Building Envelope Specialist was selected for this project and asked to install both Spray Foam insulation and a Fluid Applied Air Barrier. A fluid applied air barrier ensures comfort and energy efficiency. A fluid-applied air barrier offers performance advantages over building wraps and traditional asphalt. Fluid-applied air barriers are an effective and economical means of controlling moisture in all types of wall assemblies. The benefits of a Fluid applied air barrier include:
- Fluid Applied Air Barriers create 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.
- Fluid Applied Air Barriers also offer protective sheathing and rough openings from weather damage during and after construction.
