Paul VI to Open a Second Campus in Loudoun County
Among the Top 50 Catholic High Schools in the United States, Paul VI
opened more than 35 years ago. In 2016 it proudly announced that it will be opening a second campus in Chantilly, VA. The main goals of the build were to create state-of-the-art classrooms, labs, media and fine arts centers, great athletic facilities and a collegiate dining experience, as well as create a place where learning happens everywhere. In these in-between spaces, students and teachers can gather for small group discussions or one-on-one meetings where some of the best conversations take place and learning is stimulated.
Scope of Work
Our team of building scientists installed 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.
