The cost of a sustainable building is competitive. Often, green buildings cost no more than conventional buildings because of the design strategies used, such as minimizing the need for more costly mechanical, electrical, and structural systems.  A well-insulated building with few windows that face east and west will require less heating and air-conditioning.

 The THERMOMASS Insulated sandwich panel construction with concrete exterior and interior walls provides long-term durability, inside and out. Insulated precast concrete construction provides the opportunity to refurbish the building if the use of the building changes, without the need to tear it down.  An insulated precast concrete shell can be left in place when the building interior is renovated.

 THERMOMASS Insulated precast concrete offers non-combustible construction that helps contain a fire within boundaries.  Concrete generally fails by heat transmission long before structural failure, whereas other construction materials fail by heat transmission when collapse is imminent.  During fires, insulated precast concrete walls help provide protection to human life and the occupants’ possessions by blocking the transfer of heat through the panel.  As an exterior wall, an insulated concrete panel that endures a fire can often be reused when the building is rebuilt.

 THERMOMASS Insulated precast concrete walls provide a buffer between outdoor noise and the indoor environment. Buildings are being constructed closer together and near noise sources such as highways, railways, and airports. The mass of concrete walls can reduce sound penetrating through a wall far better than compared with wood or steel frame construction. Although some sound will penetrate the windows, a concrete building is often two-thirds quieter than a wood or steel frame building.

 THERMOMASS Insulated concrete can provide both the building structure, and the interior and exterior finishes.  Structurally efficient columns, beams, and slabs can be left exposed with natural finishes. Interior and exterior concrete walls offer a wide range of profile, texture, and colour options that require little or no additional treatment to achieve aesthetically pleasing results.  This finish reduces the need for the production, installation, maintenance, repair, and replacement of additional finish materials.

THERMOMASS INSULATION FOR YOUR NEW SCHOOL BUILDING

Insulated concrete sandwich wall facilities are among the fastest to construct. Tilt-up and precast concrete buildings have been built in as little as half the time of standard block-and-brick structures. Since the insulation is integral to the wall system, extra insulating workers are not required. The walls are placed quickly meaning other trades can get to work sooner.

Goldfoam thermal insulation for roofs walls and floors

Goldfoam has many features. Goldfoam provides effective thermal insulation in buildings. Goldfoam has a closed-cell structure that gives a maxamum resistance to water and moisture penetration. Goldfoam is light weight for easy handling and can be easily cut with a knife or a saw. Goldfoam has a high compressive strength which makes it very suitable as insulation under concrete floors and other trafficable areas  (these are just a few of the Goldfoam benifits).
