Task 1.0 -Energy Efficiency Exterior Panels
The building exterior panel system was procured and installed in accordance to the final engineered plans and
specifications as approved by the project architect. All load calculations were verified by the structural engineer. Shop
drawings were developed by the panel manufacturer and submitted for approval to the project architect and structural
engineer prior to erection. All panels were fabricated to meet the specifications for R-value and thermal performance.
Panel attachment design was reviewed for performance. All connections and fastening methods were confirmed by the
project architect and an independent third party testing consultant for conformity to the project plans and specifications.
Regular construction meetings and updates on the panel erection were documented on a weekly basis during the erection
and construction of the panels.
The project design team including the project architect and structural engineer coordinated the final installation with the
general contractor and installer. The specified and approved panel system is attached to the building superstructure in
accordance to approved plans. The panel system meets all specifications for energy efficiency performance required by
The building exterior cladding utilizes an innovative, locally manufactured pre-cast concrete panel system with integral
insulation that added to overall energy efficiency. The concrete panels are 9" to 11" thick. The resulting R-value and
thermal performance created an overall energy and operating savings in excess of thirty percent (30%).
