What we have been able to achieve with our wall panel assembly solution, EVOMAXci™, is the ability to check two very important boxes for the project owner. Number one, we are able to Value Engineer (VE) the building envelope by removing traditional components; two, create a highly efficient structure through the use of double foil faced poly-isocyanurate (poly-iso). With EVOMAXci™ we have moved to a wall design that uses a rigid outboard insulation/vapor barrier, rather than insulating within the stud walls and using conventional peel and stick membranes. This system design eliminates thermal transfer to the interior wall, thereby making the EVOMAXci™ wall panel systems ASHRAE 90.1 compliant.
With ASHRAE 90.1 showing up in specifications more often, it has created the opportunity for expensive new components to be introduced into the wall assembly. Through our strategic partnerships with Rmax and Alucoil, we have chosen to adopt the “Keep It Simple” (KIS) approach, and stay away from expensive thermal clips or resin coated sub girts. In EVOMAXci™ we’ve developed a simpler more effective, efficient, economic and environmental conscious wall panel solution. Who’s not interested in that?
EVOMAXci™ not only complies with ASHRAE 90.1, but also meets NFPA-285 requirements as an advantageous benefit! Clearly, EVOMAXci™ is a win-win for the architect, the owner and the building itself! We "Keep It Simple" by using high quality affordable building materials in our design approach and steer away from conventional construction methods. The measurable economic benefits to our VE approach, encompasses partnering with construction companies whose expertise translates into real savings through competitive costing for architects to be considering on behalf of their clients.
Additionally, negating thermal-transfer should result in significant savings for the owner, in the annual operation costs of a building. There are also environmental benefits that can be derived from the economical design of the EVOMAXci™ envelope solution. Now more than ever, building sciences have shown that many older buildings that are standing in most urban centers are the producers of poor interior air quality. This can be attributed to old technology, inferior building materials and the designed wall assemblies of a different era.
The EVOMAXci™ system addresses this for both new construction or the retro fit of older buildings, through the use of quality components and an effective, simple design. The manufacturers of EVOMAXci™ paid specific attention to detail when designing this building envelope solution. The learned knowledge of what hasn't worked, has enabled us to arrive at a system that will provide long lasting economic and environmental solutions to building management, human comfort and compliance with the ASHRAE 90.1 requirement.
