Henry products have been used in various buildings and architectural projects around the world. Read to learn more about how these products were used, and how they may be able to assist you if you are working on a similar project.
Located on a busy corner in downtown Coral Gables, Florida, a four-story, multi-tenant office building had a recurring problem; repeated failures on its 12,454 sq. ft., modified bitumen flat roof that eventually led to leaks throughout the building. Looking for a cost-effective long-term solution that also accommodated the logistical challenge of the building location, the building owner Michael Steffens turned to Florida Quality Roofing (FQR) for a silicone roof restoration coating system. As an architect himself, Steffens was aware of the cost- and energy-saving benefits of a silicone roof restoration vs a rip and replace. But he was unsure if his roof was a good candidate for restoration. FQR and Henry® together helped determine whether the roof could be restored with a Henry® Pro-Grade® Silicone roof coating system or if it had to be replaced.
To meet the demands of the 21st century, the MBCC committed to a $615 million renovation and expansion. When complete in 2018, the 1.4 million-square foot LEED-certified facility will feature a 60,000-square foot grand ballroom, a 20,000-square foot glass rooftop ballroom, new technologically advanced meeting rooms and new indoor/outdoor public spaces. Following extensive evaluation and testing, project planners selected Henry® Building Envelope Systems® solutions to restore part of the convention center’s existing roof, serve as the building’s air barrier and waterproofing systems, and provide gaskets for the underground water management system.
After 30 years of weathering the elements of the Ozark Mountains, the roof of the Evangel University Ashcroft Activities Center deteriorated greatly. In hopes of preserving the roof for another 30 years, the University turned to Henry Company for the application of a premium elastomeric roof coating.
Protecting the treasures within the museum from wind, rain, humidity, dust, allergens, toxic pollutants, ground water, car exhaust and even hurricane force winds, providing a critical layer of protection that safeguards its contents, and provides a long and healthy life for the building itself.
Architects and builders in Seattle, WA battled the continuing rise of energy costs by working to create the “tightest” envelope to minimize air leakage and energy use. Build Urban used BlueskinVP as a key element of the residential structure in order to meet the core design principles of the Built Green Program. BlueskinVP contributed to preventing condensation in the wall assembly, a common cause of mold, mildew and structural decay.
In even the most well insulated homes, as much as 40% of the energy used to condition the interior spaces can be lost to uncontrolled airflow. Unlike traditional building wraps that resist only water and moisture, BlueskinVP also prevents energy-wasting air leakage, enabling significant energy savings. This case study compares two buildings and the effective implementation of BlueskinVP.
