Roof enclosures traditionally have the largest litigation potential in the construction industry due to complexities in design, application, and environmental exposure. Development of a self-drying roof enclosure would minimize the litigation potential and provide additional benefits, such as increased roof resiliency, reduced financial burden, and minimal impact on the environment.
The current design of some wood-framed, non-ventilated roof assemblies in northern climates results in discontinuities in the vapor/air barriers, which allows moisture-laden air to migrate into the truss space and condense.
Wood flooring offers more advantages than just aesthetic appeal in both homes and commercial settings. It is easy to clean and is significantly more stain-resistant than carpeting. Wood is also strong and durable, and if properly cared for, its hard surface can last for decades.
Robotics developer Innovation First International in Greenville, Texas, has utilized metal panels for its building envelope system to add an all-metal aesthetic, provide insulation, and create modularity.
Inspired by building science, insights from commercial construction in Europe, and feedback from architects, cellular glass is being re-introduced as an approach for insulating mission critical enclosures, specifically in commercial rooftop applications.
