Lucy V. Barnsley Elementary School
An Overcrowded Lucy V. Barnsley Elementary School Will Get Some Much Needed Relief
Lucy V. Barnsley elementary school opened in 1965 and is one of 3 gifted and talented/learning disabled)elementary schools located in Montgomery County. School board officials have announced that the school will be closed for the 2017-2018 school year so that a new addition could be built. The school is approximately 72,000 square feet and has a seating capacity of 400. However, last school year there were more than 680 students enrolled in the school. As a result, some of the teachers were forced to teach in mobile trailers. After it’s finished, the new three story 28,000 square foot addition will have 11 brand new classrooms, an auditorium, and a support space.
Type of Work
Henley Building Construction contacted our team and of course asked for our help installing spray foam insulation. Up to 40% of a building’s energy is lost because of air infiltration. Air flows through gaps, cracks, and holes in through an HVAC system. That means more energy is used to maintain the comfort level of a building. Spray foam insulation outperforms other types of insulation because it can expand and tightly fill those crevices that might otherwise have been left exposed. Its resistance value,(the ability to create an airtight seal) is R-6, the highest ranking on the market.
