Western Waterproofing Company was contacted in February of 2009 by Jacobs regarding possible insulation options for converting a section of a parking garage (RP Level) into an air conditioned office space. The system specified for this project was BASF Spraytite #2 density polyurethane foam insulation on all exterior walls, ceiling of office, and ceiling of parking garage below the new office area. The polyurethane foam on the ceiling area were covered with International Ure-K self supporting cellulose thermal barrier.
Western’s first phase of the project, the RP Level, started on April 13, 2009 and was completed on May 5, 2009. This met the construction schedule provided by Legacy Building Group in order for them to turn over the RP Level to the owners by the July 1, 2009 deadline.
The second phase of the project, the ceiling of the parking garage below the floor of the RP Level, started on July 6, 2009 and was completed August 13, 2009. This also met the construction schedule provided by Legacy Building Group.
Husch Blackwell Sanders is considering additional parking garage ceilings below conditioned area; as there is a considerable temperature difference between existing office spaces and new office space.
