EIFS Project at Historic Naval Air Station
The Naval Air Station Patuxent River Building 409/Administration is being retrofitted with an energy-efficient exterior insulation and finish system (EIFS).
The Naval Air Station Patuxent River Tester reports that the building, which has historic significance dating back to World War II, says that the EIFSs include a variety of insulating materials that are used when the time and cost to insulate from inside are problematic. One option, according to commentary in the story, is infiltration membranes.
These are thin sheets of material that prevent the air movement around walls that create drafts. The work is expected to be completed by the end of August, according to the story.
Last summer, it was announced that the historic Missouri Athletic Club in St. Louis would undergo a $2.4 million energy efficiency retrofit. The project is expected to generate $200,000 per year.
