Permasteelisa Group Wins Award from the National Institute of Building Sciences

Permasteelisa Group’s moisture-free sustainable closed cavity façade, or mfree-SCCF, has received the Honor Award, first place for high-performance innovation in the National Institute of Building Sciences 2017 Beyond Green High Performance Building Awards.

The program recognizes the initiatives that shape, inform and catalyze the high-performance building market, as well as the real-world application of high-performance design and construction practices.

The award was assigned during the National Institute of Building Sciences Sixth Annual Conference and Expo, held at the Mandarin Oriental Hotel, in Washington, D.C.

Alberto Franceschet, executive vice president of business development and sales, and Alex Cox, business development manager of the West Coast, from Permasteelisa North America, attended the ceremony to receive the award and to present the mfree-SCCF façade.

The mfree-SCCF is described as a cost-efficient façade that contributes to high environmental ratings of a building, offering daylight and light-thermal acoustic comfort. It is designed in such a manner that no contamination by dust and condensation is permitted inside the internal cavity of the double-skin façade.

The mfree-SCCF façade has been used by Permasteelisa in projects around the world. These include 200 George Street (Sydney, Australia), JTI International HQ, (Geneva, Switzerland), One New Burlington Place (London, U.K.), LEO (Frankfurt, Germany) and the Roche Building (Basel, Switzerland).

The mfree-SCCF was featured in the February 2017 issue of USGlass magazine. Read the article here.
