Using spray foam in a continuous insulation application for schools and universities
The performance and cost advantages of using spray foam insulation in a continuous insulation application are not exclusive to just commercial design and construction. Forward thinking architectural firms across the United States are also considering how to effectively insulate and air seal the exteriors of educational facilities such as schools and universities with spray foam insulation. The recent completion of the $28 million high school in Prescott, Wisconsin is an excellent example of out of the box thinking when it comes to building materials.
The team at Bray Architects designed the new 150,000 sq. ft. high school facility with the inclusion of Icynene closed cell spray foam applied to the exterior in a continuous insulation application.
The school board itself aimed to reduce ongoing operating costs through the inclusion of energy efficient building materials. Through consultation with local representatives and the architectural firm, Icynene spray foam insulation was specified. The design team was guided step-by-step through the process and performance advantages of using closed cell spray foam in a continuous insulation application.
