Kingspan enhances HVAC performance at the new D.R. Horton Headquarters building

The Project

D.R. Horton, Inc., referred to as America’s Builder, knows a thing or two about construction. By 2017, the company had been the largest homebuilder by volume in the United States for fifteen consecutive years and has built more than 620,000 homes during that time. With a portfolio of high-quality homes available in 26 states, D. R. Horton selects the best materials for each of its projects. So, it should come as no surprise that when the company was designing and building its own new corporate headquarters in Arlington, Texas, it selected The Kingspan KoolDuct System of premium performance pre-insulated ductwork to handle the HVAC duties of the four-story building. “The folks at D. R. Horton had learned about the KoolDuct System and felt that it would be a good fit for this particular project,” says Jerry Arms, project manager, PTM Manufacturing, a Kingspan KoolDuct Delivery Partner distributor.

The new D. R. Horton six-acre campus features a four-story office building and connected parking garage that enable employees to work more closely together on a daily basis. With an eye on energy efficiency, air quality and space savings, the company chose to  leverage The Kingspan KoolDuct  System throughout the new  facility.

An advanced and innovative pre-insulated HVAC ductwork system, The Kingspan KoolDuct System offers benefits such as reduced installation time, low weight, space savings through flush-to-ceiling installation, increased performance and energy efficiency.  Components of the system include premium performance Kingspan KoolDuct panels, fabrication methods, coupling systems and a complete line of accessories to produce pre-insulated rectangular ductwork in long sections. Ductwork fabricated from The Kingspan KoolDuct System can be installed indoors, outdoors, concealed above false ceilings and below raised floors.

“We’ve had a relationship with D. R. Horton for a long time,” notes Gavin Hunter, Commercial Sales Manager, Kingspan Insulation. “They have used GreenGuard house wrap in many of their  residential programs, so selecting another of our products made sense for them. Working with one of our delivery partners to ship the system to a mechanical contractor, we easily stayed on schedule. The company is now enjoying its modern, comfortable new  headquarters.”
