It’s easier to manage a better building
Enhance your brand with an resident experience that is truly superior. In today’s marketplace, it’s challenging to differentiate your commercial and residential properties. Often, features and location aren’t enough. HercuWall’s airtight design and R31 insulation provides superior privacy, energy efficiency, and overall comfort. Because it is fire, rot, mold and insect resistant, HercuWall is also easier and more affordable to maintain. This gives you a real and lasting advantage that drives leasing and renewals while minimizing turnover.
THE PARAGON OF ENERGY PERFORMANCE
Paragon Development Group, a leading developer in the Southwest, was looking for a competitive edge for their new build-to-rent project, Hampton East. They understood that simply building the 100 building development to code wasn’t enough. They needed a way to differentiate themselves in the marketplace and they chose the superior energy efficiency of HercuWall, which reduces energy costs by 20%-40%.
The HercuWall team got engaged early to set the project up for success. In addition to delivering R31 airtight assembly, HercuWall delivered other outstanding benefits as well. These included significantly reducing the project’s exposure to fluctuating prices for wood, while utilizing a crew that relied on far fewer skilled carpenters. In fact, HercuWall required about half the man hours to assemble compared to stick.
HercuWall also saved time by eliminating the need for insulation and house wrap as well as the inspections that go with those steps. As a result, the project was completed two months sooner than it would have been with stick, and the energy efficiency numbers came up strong. The per unit HERS Index is 53. This score is projected an annual savings per unit of $849 when compared to the average US home.
FASTER THAN ICF WITH BETTER OUTCOMES
The Toronto based general contractor, Pro Group of Companies INC, was looking to leverage the benefits of panelized construction, but was not satisfied with the limitations of ICF. When the global leader in building materials innovation, LafargeHolcim, invited HercuWall to demonstrate its capabilities, Pro Group was there. They soon realized they’d found their answer.
Pro Group was so excited about the efficiencies of HercuWall that they adopted it for their 23 unit condominium building, which consisted of four stories of living space, above two-story concrete podium parking. They were especially attracted to the opportunity to build a better quality building in terms of strength, efficiency and comfort, while requiring significantly less labor.
HercuWall provided a rep on site for training, which went quickly. The team learned on the first floor, and was capable of doing the rest of the structure themselves. Each level took about a week to complete, including exterior walls, corridor walls and demising walls. This was far faster than ICF or wood frame, and required a third fewer manhours of skilled carpentry. All while delivering greater energy efficiency than the building was originally designed for.
COMING HOME TO STRENGTH AND EFFICIENCY
The TBRC Group, based in Tampa Fla, was planning to build eight spec homes. To maximize their efficiency, they wanted a more streamlined approach than CMU block. Because they were building in a high velocity hurricane zone, the solution had to be Hurricane rated as well. Between the building efficiency and the strength, HercuWall was the ideal choice.
TBRC needed a single day and a crew of just five to get the exterior walls up, inspected and grouted for an entire house. In the process, their spec homes improved from R4 to R31 insulation. And they cut their cost by about 50%, compared to what they would have had to pay for skilled masons. The owner of TBRC is such a fan of HercuWall that he became an installer in his region. And he’s planning to use HercuWall in the next round of three spec homes he will build.
“We saved 2-3 months, while building a better product. HercuWall actually allowed us to increase both density and open spaces. So it’s better for our bottom line and makes us more competitive for tenants.”
“HercuWall gives us a better way to build better. The quality is much higher than stick and you don’t have to worry about labor, materials and all the rework. When you work smarter and safer, everything just goes more smoothly.”
“HercuWall is a differentiator that enables us to develop higher quality units with energy efficiency savings, which increases the desirability to our residents and brings value to all our stakeholders. It’s also integral to mitigating our risk through predictability in pricing, sourcing, quality and labor requirements.“
“HercuWall is one of the highest-quality and energy efficient, panelized exterior and demising wall systems available for the construction industry. HercuWall’s professional collaboration team consisting of industry leading consultants, manufacturers, and suppliers ensure all efforts are made to deliver the most versatile, construction-friendly wall systems available today. ”
