The Department of the Army’s Boatwright Maintenance Park Building 2770 in Fort Knox, KY, is showing its strength in building envelope energy efficiency. This building is currently achieving energy reductions of 46.7%, thanks in part to its EIFS exterior and spray foam roof. The building is part of the U.S. Department of Energy’s 2012 Better Buildings Federal Award program, that was started last fall, and looks to conclude this September.
An article from Durability and Design reads:
A highly insulated new spray foam roof and insulated EIFS walls are giving a federal building a big lead in the first year-long competition to find the most energy-efficient facility.
The next two buildings come in with 30.3% and 27.1% energy reductions, respectfully since last fall.
