LG Chem wanted the Holland factory to mirror the philosophy driving the Chevy Volt: sustainable, long-term efficiency, eye-catching style, and performance, all at a satisfactory cost. This 208,000+ square foot facility needed to be fully commissioned and functional within 15 months.
Associates of the project’s architectural firm, Rossetti, viewed the Kingspan Optimo wall panel when they visited Kingspan’s facility in Caledon, Ontario. They left feeling certain that the Optimo panel was the best product to be specified. It has tested R-values as high as 29, superior airtightness, and low thermal bridging. In comparison to conventional cavity-based insulation systems, Optimo ratings and features can bring a potential energy savings up to 30 percent.
