This historic home in Boulder is being converted into apartment units by Urban Green Development. Bringing the building up to code presented some unique challenges in achieving energy efficiency.
The experts at Kinzler Construction Services installed closed cell spray foam insulation to get to R-50 at the roof line. Batt insulation was used in much of the home and blown-in-blanket (BIBS) was installed in some areas because of its ability to form to small gaps and oddly sized obstructions. The finished project resulted in outstanding thermal performance and excellent sound control.
