was an amazing moment for City Kidz as Rev. Todd Bender, founder

Condominium Corporation #34 wanted to improve energy efficiency
at their 44 Falby Court condominium building. Consultant Vera
Zek advised the owner to install an air and vapor barrier membrane,
insulation, and metal cladding system. The outside of this 18-story
building consisted of fluted, concrete shear walls. The irregular
shaped walls and the air and vapor barrier membrane originally
specified for the job posed a real problem for the subcontractor,
Bowie Contracting, because the membrane required the use of a
trowel for the application. A peel-and-stick or roller-grade product
on approximately 8,200 square feet of unsmooth, fluted wall would
have been extremely labor intensive, keeping Bowie Contracting
on the job longer and costing the contractor and the owner more
Contracting employed the services of Aquanorth and recommended
that the specifications switch to ExoAir 120 Spray-Applied
Air & Vapor Barrier Membrane because of its efficiency and
ease of installation, especially where irregularly shaped walls
are a concern. Since ExoAir 120 exceeds the industrys
most rigorous standards for air permeability, it would perform
as required and ExoAir 120 was permitted as a substitute.
ExoAir 110 Sheet-Applied Membrane and ExoAir 120 Roller
Grade were used at all of the detail areas. Spectrem® 1 and
Spectrem® 2 Silicone Sealants were used to seal all of the
window and perimeter joints. Since these products are all part
of the ExoAir Air and Vapor Barrier System, they provided
an air- and vapor-tight seal, and eliminated any guesswork when
it came to compatibility between system components.
ability to use a spray-applied air barrier membrane reduced Bowie
and Aquanorths time on the job significantly. Where the
specified membrane would have taken several additional days to
complete, ExoAir 120 only took three to four days to apply
without compromising the integrity of the system or its performance
and saved the owner money.
