1611 West Division


The Project

At 1611 West Division, the developers wanted to create an impressive 11-story, metal-and-glass, LEED-silver compliant apartment building. Once this exciting project was completed, it became an environmental milestone – the first transit oriented development within the City of Chicago.

Kingspan’s Designwall 1000 building envelope  solution was selected for the project to provide two of the building’s most valued features – a great appearance and excellent energy performance.

Picking up the Pace

By specifying this single-component wall system, the design team saved substantial installation costs. Faster on-site installation time compared to traditional multi-part exterior walls helped the project keep on schedule, while reducing the building’s overall demand for energy. Because these insulated metal panels weigh only 3 pounds per square foot, transport costs and installation energy were reduced.

Going the Extra Mile

As a contributing factor to a structure’s sustainability rating, the exterior skins contain a substantial amount of recycled content. Kingspan insulated metal panels last as long as the service life expected of a standard commercial building and offer multiple end-of-life reuse options.
