Approximately 40,000 sq. ft. of WRAPSHIELD SA® SELF-ADHERED was used on the reconstruction of the Federal Center South Building 1202 in Seattle, Washington. The 209,000 sq. ft. building serves as regional headquarters for the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) Northwest District.
WRAPSHIELD SA® SELF-ADHERED helped the reconstruction project achieve a level of energy efficiency at the top 1% of all US buildings, functioning as a continuous air barrier membrane system, while protecting the structure from the damaging effects of moisture.
Despite a slim $65 million budget, Building 1202 “achieved the most innovative and high performance design in federal government building projects” according to the American Institute of Architects. Awarded one of AIA's Top 10 Green Projects 2013 and a National Design-Build Award from Design-Build Institute of America, Building 1202 utilized a host of energy-saving and sustainable products to achieve a high performance, long-lasting structure.
The design/build team has 0.5% of the original contract value at risk, pending verification of the building's energy performance after one (1) year of occupancy. This risk is shared between Sellen Construction, ZGF Architects, and the major subcontractors and design consultants who have primary responsibility for Building 1202's energy performance.
