New Mexico Schools Save on Construction Costs with EPS Insulation

 

APS

APS Food & Nutrition Services Kitchen & Storage Warehouse, R-Tech Installation

Albuquerque Public Schools (APS) in New Mexico have been undertaking a massive classroom and educational rebuild and remodel.  All new construction has been designed using sustainable materials and energy-efficient principles with LEED certification as the end goal.

As part of new buildings under construction is a 108,000 sq. ft. central Food and Nutrition Services Kitchen and Storage Warehouse.

Originally specified XPS was replaced with Insulfoam R-Tech VI 40 psi over the sub slab freezer floor.  The project utilized 2 lifts of 3″ R-Tech instead of 3 lifts of 2″ XPS ultimately saving the  concrete contractor approximately $20,000 in material costs.
