W. R. MEADOWS was specified in a project for the McCausland Lower School & Commons. To read the full case study, click here. Tim Durso was the salesperson representing W. R. MEADOWS on the McCausland project. One of the products used on this project was AIR-SHIELD ALUMINUM SHEET MEMBRANE. This product is a self-adhering air/vapor and liquid moisture barrier, and it is part of a total W. R. MEADOWS system used in completing a building envelope. It is a roll-type product that is nominally 40 mils thick, and the membrane’s controlled thickness is fabricated from aluminum bonded to specially modified asphalt. Durso thought that it would be key for the contractors to approach decision makers with a single source building envelope as opposed to using multiple products from multiple manufacturers. As such, he recommended MEL-ROL as the waterproofing product on the project. Not only would it provide for an easy and efficient installation and seamless transitions, but it would also give the building owner the advantage of a single warranty via W. R. MEADOWS. In addition, the following products were also used: AIR-SHIELD LIQUID FLASHING, AIR-SHIELD LSR, BEM, and MEL-DRAIN.
Through it all, we are happy to report that in the end it’s the students who stood to benefit from a project well done. The McCausland Lower School & Commons at Springside Chestnut Hill Academy opened its doors to the student body on September 3, 2019. Again, if you wish to see the full case study, click here.
