Wain Rd

The Wain Road residential project features insulated concrete tilt-up panels, which address many challenges in home building such as mold, rot, maintenance, thermal bridging, poor insulation values, indoor air quality and acoustics. Insulated footings and slab were easily achieved. No thermal bridging occurred fiberglass connector pins were used between the exterior and interior layers of concrete. High R-values in the wall assembly were easily achieved. Out board insulation of the building envelope pushes the dew point outside of the building envelope and eliminates rot in the wall assembly. Wain Road's wal panels have low permeable ratings for vapour diffusion and superior air tightness at floors, walls, roof, windows and penetrations. Requiring only three primary materials, the tilt-up method elimated waste and materials used. Thermal mass provides thermal comfort with marginal temperature fluctuations. As such, minimal heating systems were required.
