New Case Study: North Carolina School of Science and Math in Morganton, NC

The North Carolina School of Science and Math in Morganton, NC began construction in 2019 using ArmorWall Structural Insulated Sheathing™ products for the building enclosure system, supplied by MaxLife Industries.

ArmorWall Vapor Permeable (VP) installed on the NCSSM building.

Case Study Summary

In 2019, Duda Paine Architects LLP was looking for a building enclosure solution that could be installed quickly and in many different types of weather to help clients save time and money on projects, particularly those taking place in the rainy spring season of North Carolina.

Through an educational lunch-n-learn with Carolina REP’s Sales Representative Beau Preston, the firm’s staff was introduced to ArmorWall Structural Insulated Sheathing™. Installer Precision Walls started with ArmorWall Below Grade (BG) around the foundation and followed up with ArmorWall Vapor Permeable (VP)* on the above grade exterior walls.

Both ArmorWall Vapor Permeable (VP) and Below Grade (BG) can be seen installed on the building.

From the Installer

When interviewed for the Case Study, Nathan Collins of Precision Walls, Inc. had this to say about ArmorWall on the project:

“The project was 100% weathered in faster. We were five to six weeks behind on the construction schedule due to delays with steel. ArmorWall got us back on track. We were framed and sheathed in six weeks, saving us three to four weeks on the project schedule.”
