Summary

In Fall of 2018, construction began on the first of two new medical office buildings to support the healthcare needs of the growing local community in Boiling Springs, SC. The first building was constructed using a common wall assembly that included gypsum sheathing, a spray applied air barrier, mineral wool insulation, and other systems commonly used in metal stud buildings. Unfortunately, a rainy season led to months of construction delays and challenges installing the building enclosure system.

When construction began in 2019 on a similar building, the project team was ready and willing to try a new building enclosure system. Fortunately, MaxLife Industries’ National Sales Manager, Beau Preston of Carolina Rainscreen and Envelope Professionals, had been in touch with the project team and introduced them to ArmorWall Structural Insulated Sheathing™. When they realized the immense time and cost savings available by switching to ArmorWall, they made the change.
