Case Study for City of Mason Municipal Aquatic Center in Mason, OH



 In the fall of 2019, the City of Mason began demolition of an outdoor pool in order to make way for the construction of a new state-of-the-art aquatic center with both indoor and outdoor amenities, and an addition to follow, that would serve as a premier amenity for City of Mason residents.  The new center features a heated leisure pool, an enclosed 50-meter pool, a community room, a catering area and covered entrance that welcomes guests.  Like other projects where our products are used, ArmorWall wasn’t specified in the original design.  For this project, a traditional building enclosure system had been planned, but, a cost-benefit analysis performed once construction began revealed that a less expensive system was needed.

This is where ArmorWall Vapor Permeable (VP) Structural Insulated Sheathing™ came in.  When assessing ArmorWall, the project team determined that the slightly higher up-front costs of the ArmorWall product would yield $11,000 in total project savings through a faster installation time and less labor on the job, and an overall increase of 6 – 9% energy efficiency.
