Products reduce raw material usage and provide superior continuous insulation

AltusGroup, Inc., booth 1961, will exhibit its CarbonCast® line of precast concrete products at Greenbuild International Conference and Expo, the world’s largest event dedicated to green building, at McCormick Place West in Chicago, Ill. on November 17-19, 2010.

CarbonCast enclosure and double tee systems manufactured with C-GRID® epoxy-coated carbon fiber grid for reinforcing and shear transfer represent some of the latest innovations in sustainable design for precast concrete. The use of carbon fiber grid in all applications reduces raw material usage, while offering the ability to provide added insulation and energy savings in building enclosure systems without compromising aesthetics.

Notable CarbonCast projects to date include 2010 GreenSite Project of the Year recipients: Proximity Hotel, a 55,000-square-foot hotel in Greensboro, N.C. and the $22.1 million, 108,000-square-foot Willow Creek Elementary School in Fleetwood, Pa. Also the nation’s first LEED® Platinum hotel, the $28 million Proximity Hotel features CarbonCast High Performance Insulated Wall Panels produced by Metromont Corporation of Greenville S.C., as does Willow Creek Elementary School by High Concrete Group LLC in Denver, Pa. CarbonCast High Performance Insulated Wall Panels use a carbon fiber grid connector to practically eliminate thermal bridging, enabling continuous insulation (c.i.) to meet current ASHRAE codes.

The 2010 Greenbuild International Conference and Expo presented by the United States Green Building Council, hosts educational sessions, renowned speakers, green building tours, special seminars and networking events for thousands of building professionals.
