As a member of the Society of American Military Engineers (SAME) and frequent partner in military construction projects, Tremco understands the parallel challenges being faced by military and private sector clients. With federal mandates like EPACT 2005 and ASHRAE 189.1 calling for decreases in energy consumption, and more stringent standards being applied to indoor air quality (IAQ), the control of air and moisture has become an absolute.
Tremco offers single-source, warranted solutions specifically engineered to control air and moisture infiltration at critical connections, transitions and penetrations throughout the building envelope - helping to meet key project deliverables including:
Continuing Education in Building Science (AIA Credit)
Tremco offers continuing education for Department of Defense (DOD) decision makers at the USACE Districts, NAVFAC Engineering Commands, and Base DPW’s across the U.S. Currently, we offer similar education to Construction Management and Design-Build firms regardless of the contract delivery method. We believe this collaboration supports our collective goal of educating the market on tested system solutions to improve the long-term performance of the building envelope.
Please contact us today to arrange a webinar on the following topics: energy performance of the building envelope. Previous educational sessions have resulted in requests for assistance on specific projects. The project teams have been particularly interested in ways to design and detail “connection” points in the building envelope in order to deliver “continuity” of the air-vapor barrier, roof, below grade and glazing/fenestration components, resulting in an overall increase in energy efficiency.
Documented, Tested Performance
Tremco tests to ASTM standards that outperform the USACE standard of <.25cfm at 75pa. for air leakage, our integrated systems include engineered transition assemblies, air barriers, waterproofing and drainage systems, sealant and firestopping solutions and deck and membrane coating systems.
Using the widely accepted LEED®-NC v.3.0 system as our base point, we have outlined here the ways our organization can help make sustainable design a reality throughout the building.
Our Building Envelope Solutions Team (BEST), a group of building science specialists, and local field representatives are dedicated to optimize outcomes through:
