Designed to use minimal energy through affordable, passive means, this 1,700-square-foot house in the Prescott, Kansas neighborhood, is just minutes from downtown Kansas City. To achieve its goal of a 90-percent reduction in heating and cooling costs, strategies including louvers, thermal mass, high-performance windows, super insulation, southern orientation and an airtight building envelope were employed. National Gypsum’s Gold Bond® BRAND eXP® Interior Extreme® Gypsum Panels are components of this project.
Concrete damage caused by freeze-thaw cycles is one of the main reasons for concrete deterioration. Water trapped in the capillaries and micro-cracks of concrete expands when it freezes. Without any free space to compensate for this expansion, internal pressure builds, slowly widening existing capillaries and creating new cracks in concrete. When temperatures rise, the frozen water in the concrete thaws and travels deeper into the capillary matrix, where the process is repeated during the next freeze cycle.
What happens when you bring together 250,000 people from around the world for six days in Munich, Germany? Ideas are exchanged. Best practices are shared. Deeper levels of understanding are reached.
