Vertical Building Envelope Solutions – laying the foundation for your cladding and finish selections.

The focus of design is the vertical finish products that will define the structure visually.  Translating conceptual designs and Design Development phase drawings to construction documents meeting modern code demands, LEED considerations, building commissioning and performance goals requires a close look at the integration of air barriers, insulation and cladding support assemblies.

We encourage you to contact our representatives to review your specific problems and to provide assistance toward solidifying material and system choices, cladding integration, details and specifications.  Every project and cladding has its own set of nuances and problems that need to be addressed to complete integration.  Our role is to assist you through that process.

Key considerations that THOMCO representatives can assist with:

  • Energy efficiency, Energy Code Compliance and impact on building operating performance
  • Considerations for the Prescriptive Continuous Insulation Compliance Path
  • Code compliant insulation packages and choices
  • Understanding steel studs, thermal loss and related issues
  • Designing insulation systems for moisture control
  • Cladding Support Assemblies that are energy code compliant
  • Taking control of cladding support assemblies across varied cladding manufacturers and types
  • NFPA 285, insulation and air barriers
  • Air Barrier selection and detailing
