In August 2014, Kinzler Construction Services acquired Cocoon to bring Kinzler’s resources to the Minneapolis/St. Paul market, while simultaneously supporting the mission of expanding the Cocoon high-performance philosophy to other markets around the country. Kinzler Construction Services will be holding an open house event for the launch of our new Minneapolis location, home of Cocoon Home Performance Solutions. The event will kick off October 8, 2015 at 3:00 p.m. and will continue until 6:00 p.m. It will be an opportunity to learn about our company and products, as well as meet some of our vendors. We will also be giving away gift bags and door prizes, including a GoPro Camera! Dinner will be provided by Fork In The Road Catering and will feature: pulled pork tacos, Italian frechetta sandwiches, buffalo chicken sandwiches and bacon and blue cheese stuffed sliders. We will also be offering beer, wine and desserts!
There are two builder credit classes and an AIA credit class that will be offered by members of the Cocoon Home Performance team. At 2:00 p.m. Peter Burns, Sales Manager, will be teaching an hour long class discussing requirements for building and duct air leakage testing in the 2015 Minnesota Energy Code and explore testing procedures and strategies.
Also at 2:00 Chris Anderson, CSI, CCPR, IIDA, USGBC, Associate AIA will be hosting a class discussing the physics and nature of sound – this course will use details and examples to cover design criteria such as STC, CAC, NRC, factors of sound control such as use of building materials, flanking paths, and ASTM testing methods related to interior partitions in the architectural environment.
