Gables Construction had an R-5.0 masonry wall insulation specification requirement and needed to reduce the cost of the project. Project Solution: C Q Insulation has used Fi-Foil’s AA2 Vapor Shield on several other commercial projects, and knew it was the right product for Horizon Bay at Hyde Park. AA2 Vapor Shield™ reflective insulation provided the general contractor with a masonry wall insulation R-value of 5.1 when installed over 1-5/8” metal framing, at an installed cost under $0.25/sf. And this lowered their masonry wall insulation costs by 30% over foam board. Horizon Bay Retirement Living, a national seniors housing operator based in Tampa, FL is building this new luxury retirement community in the historic Hyde Park area. Their six-story independent and assisted living facility, is the first such facility developed in the city in over 18 years. It will be a total of 153,000sf with 136 units, when completed in 2011.
