Many builders have already begun to create tight building envelopes on residential properties. Doing so on a commercial building creates the same benefit, but needs to be approached differently than when cladding a residential project.
Commercial buildings often have different types of cladding and framing including timber, concrete, metal, glazing and cavity wall systems. Each of these types of cladding and framing needs a different approach to insulating the building in order to achieve the best results. Simply using the same methods as those used on a residential project won’t necessarily work.
Therefore, each commercial building needs to be evaluated separately for its needs and the best type of insulation selected based on the cladding, framing and wall system in use.
Depending on the needs of the building, creating a tight building envelope may require insulation board, framing board, cavity fill or a combination of these products. This is why Kingspan makes a range of insulation products designed with commercial buildings in mind. With Kingspan, you can use the right insulation no matter what materials the building you are working on is being built with, creating the ideal building envelope.
