Seeing Green? As you drive by the new Service Center in Olds Station, you may have noticed a very green exterior. What is it? Contractors continue work on the building enclosure and that includes installing the vibrant green sheathing. The fluid-applied weather barrier is rolled on to protect the building from moisture infiltration as seen in the picture.
After waterproofing, the contractor will install a precast “ledger” at each floor level, followed by window frames. Getting the building weather tight is a major construction milestone and will allow interior work to continue through the winter.
The final exterior finish is a combination of masonry and reconstituted stone panels. All of these steps are carefully coordinated to ensure the enclosure is weather tight, performs efficiently in extreme temperatures, and lasts for generations.
