Whenever Kingspan insulated metal panels are selected for a project, architects and contractors can be sure the result will be a thermally, efficient airtight building envelope. A tight building envelope is the first line of defense for inhibiting energy loss. In the CODE Building
project located in Charlottesville, Virginia, architects selected Kingspan KarrierPanels
to help fill that role.
The building was designed to meet AIA’s 2030 challenge for efficiency and thermal performance. KarrierPanel helped enclose the building like a refrigerator, allowing the direct outside air system to work even more efficiently, leading to potential LEED certification.
As with the other projects highlighted, the CODE Building project also involved tight quarters. Using the all-in-one KarrierPanel system eliminated the work of several subcontractors, allowing other crews more space to work and speeding up construction in an area that is situated between a pedestrian area and main road.
When space and time are tight and buildings needs to be airtight, Kingspan insulated metal panels are the solution. Much simpler and quicker to install than traditional site-built wall and roof enclosure systems, these insulated metal panels require only one installer instead of multiple trades and provide an airtight, weathertight building envelope in a fraction of the time of other systems.
