November 10th Update

Changes to the Exterior:

Regeneration Park Exterior Painting

The new color scheme is almost there!  A beautiful new gray color is the base tone for the renovation and recycling of this exciting project.  Watch over the next week as a very interesting “burgundy” color is added to the front of the building.  This once blah, brownish -color metal building is being transformed into a modern visual building at the Gateway of Portsmouth along Route 1.

Interior Changes: Up to 12″ of spray-in foam insulation is going in at the ceiling level and up to 6″ of foam is going into the wall cavities.  This equates to an R-80 in the ceiling and an R-40 in the wall.  Why so much?  The envelope performance is the single biggest element in a building that can lead to positive energy conservation and reduced energy costs annually.  By insulating correctly (and not with batt insulation) a project will see a better interior environment and better cost savings every year for the life of the project.  Yes it costs more now, but paying extra today will insure a building with lifelong comfort and performance.  Payback time for these types of “non-visual” items are sometimes difficult to sell to a client but it is the best money you can spend on the building.

Insulation is Being Installed at Regeneration Park!
