Fast Wrap USA, the nation's premier, full-service industrial commercial shrink wrap company, was contracted to help the America’s Cup adhere to its commitment to social, economic and environmental sustainability in 2013. The company, which offers the most advanced technology in shrink wrap, supplies and support equipment, recently completed the interior construction of Piers 27 and 29 at the America’s Cup Village by utilizing its LEED certified, 100-percent-recyclable, LDPE #4 film. The Reno, Nev.-based company, with offices in Arizona, northern and Southern California, began by installing interior walls and insulation and then wrapping each section accordingly, creating individual rooms, bathrooms, team meeting rooms and more, throughout the 100,000 square-foot venues.

Known as the industry leader in the installation of shrink wrap and asset protection, Fast Wrap was selected as a cost effective alternative to traditional construction methods for the interior build-out of Piers 27 and 29. With tight construction deadlines, Fast Wrap met and exceeded all schedules for a cost savings of approximately 50 percent. And now, not only are both venues environmentally sustainable, all interior walls are also flame retardant and weatherproof.

In keeping with the Healthy Ocean Project, the America’s Cup’s three-pronged environmental protection program, Fast Wrap helps the world-wide organization achieve its goal of reducing plastic use and pollution – particularly that of single-use plastic – through execution of this first-ever, 100-percent-recyclable construction method.

According to AmericasCup.com, in 2012, “over 170 tons of trash were removed from San Francisco Bay creeks and shoreline areas on just one day.” The use of Fast Wrap during the America’s Cup not only helps reduce that waste, it also sets the standard for America’s Cup competitions for generations to come by showcasing the progressive venue on televisions around the globe.

“We are extremely proud of our work on the America’s Cup this year and look forward to what will hopefully be a long and prosperous relationship for many years to come,” said Chris McMillan, director of business development for Fast Wrap. “Not only is this a great opportunity for us as a company but it’s an opportunity to show the world that there is a better way to do things – a greener way, a more sustainable way – without cutting corners. We can do good things for business while also doing good things for our environment.”
