BASF Provides Live Demonstrations of Sustainable Construction at Green Build 2007

Florham Park, NJ (PRWEB) November 1, 2007

BASF will show and explain the use of technologies and analytic tools that can make building projects more sustainable at Green Build 2007, November 6-9, at McCormick Place West, Chicago, Illinois.

BASF technologies will be demonstrated at Booth 1010 at the top of each hour on November 7 and 8, giving conference attendees a better understanding of how smart chemistry can help make buildings durable and energy-efficient with less impact on the environment.

Each interactive booth demonstration will be 15 minutes long and focus on how specific BASF-enhanced products can help a design professional maximize a project’s LEED rating and improve overall performance.

Programming includes:

• Master Builders brand products from BASF’s Admixture Systems business line are combined in a unique system for the production of pervious concrete, allowing builders to reduce a project’s land requirements by eliminating pavement runoff and storm water storage needs.

• Radiance® e-0.25 Attic Barrier Coating that creates an effective radiant barrier which stops 75% of the potential radiant energy transfer into an attic and reduces HVAC loads.

• BASF Polyurethane Foam Enterprises closed-cell spray-applied polyurethane foam insulating air barriers for increased structural integrity, air leakage control, maximum R-values and improved air quality.

• Elastopor® polyurethane foam systems used in insulated building panels for superior insulation performance, increased R-values, comfort, air tightness and durability.

• ULTRA-Cool® coatings for metal substrates that increase the reflectivity of medium to dark colored roofs, reducing interior heat loads and air conditioning needs and VARI-Cool® coatings which enhance architectural design flexibility.

• Styropor® insulting concrete forms and structural insulated panels for tighter structures, better R-values, less heat gain or loss, and improved indoor air quality.

• OPPANOL® Polyisobutylene Thermal Plastic Spacer technology that enables manufacturers to produce aluminum widows, which maintain window insulating gas seal integrity and initial R-values for many years.

Also, on November 8, 2007 at 10 a.m., BASF’s Christopher Bradley will present Defining Durability: 2006 BASF Eco- Efficiency Construction Materials Analysis in the back right hand corner of the exhibit hall. Bradley’s 40 minute presentation will illustrate how BASF Eco-Efficiency Analysis delineates the lifecycle of a product “from cradle to grave”, starting from the extraction of the raw material from the earth through to recycling after use.

An examination of four case studies will reveal how economics and ecology can be reconciled in corporate decision-making. Areas that will be covered include how strategic management of environmental aftercare, otherwise known as “end-of-pipe technology,” and process-integration measures create quantifiable successes that benefit the environment at all stages of the lifecycle.

TenTen Design Build Premieres at Green School Summit in Pasadena, CA

Livermore, CA (PRWEB) October 26, 2012

On Thursday morning the duo opened the show next to ARXX, the leading manufacturer of ICFs. In tandem they talked to School Building Representatives about this technology that allows for shortened building cycles without any compromise in quality to traditional construction. In fact, according to Dennis Cohan, “the advantages are outstanding, including quality and pricing.”

Lesley Miles, experienced LEED and ICF architect, explains that, “Insulated Concrete Forms are one of the most advanced methods of building technology today. Its primary advantages include energy efficiency and structural superiority over conventional construction. Projects finish faster, are competitively priced, and are designed to last for centuries, not decades.”

On Friday, Lesley and Dennis presented a talk, “Fast and Green: Opal Cliffs Case Study,” based on a recently completed school project in Capitola, CA. The project included two buildings, housing transitional kindergarten and pre-school classes, as well as administrative space and playground areas. Using sustainable products and processes, including ICFs, Lesley explains, “from ground-breaking to the first day of school was 116 calendar days phenomenal for a superior building.”

The team is currently specifying more projects, working on DSA PCs for 1,2,3 classroom pods and interested in talking to school districts who have a vision and want to build superior schools that will last, and be low cost to operate and maintain.

About TenTen Design Build

TenTen Design Build is the collaboration of Weston Miles Architects (WMA) and PENCON Construction to create an entity that provides full-service design build services to projects using the latest sustainable products and processes centered on Insulated Concrete Forms (ICFs). Our experience tells us that potential building owners benefit greatly when the architect and builder can collaborate and leverage these technologies. WMA won the 2008 National ICF Builder Award and led the first school project in California using ICF products receiving LEED certification. WMA and PENCON have collaborated on many projects; the most recent is 2 multiple-room school structures that leveraged the outstanding capabilities of ICF with other sustainable, energy-saving capabilities to create a fantastic environment for teachers and children to enhance learning.
