Cost savings, energy efficient, sustainable, one warranty, a single trade, and several finishes rarely all seem to be on the table at once. The use of EIFS, more specifically Dryvit’s Outsulation® Plus MD System, showed each of these were attainable and more.
Completed in 2007, The Stratford at Kenwood, Cincinnati, OH appears to be a combination of several building materials, but in fact is all EIFS. Dryvit’s TerraNeo® finish, Lymestone™ finish and DPR™ finish were used across the building’s 180,000 sq/ft to showcase the appearances of granite, limestone, and stucco. Beyond the noticeable aesthetic appeal, the EIFS provided cost savings that would be near impossible to achieve with heavier materials.
Now, 10 years old, The Stratford at Kenwood looks like it was completed just recently with all of these updated photos. EIFS in the Spotlight is a term designated for projects highlighting the benefits of exterior insulation and finish systems over others. This Dryvit Systems project easily meets that criteria.
