Queens, NY | Residential
Project Imperial was a 7-story apartment building which received a full exterior renovation consisting of repointing the existing brick façade and enveloping it with approximately 20,000 sf of a Sto Therm CI Lotusan EIFS system. By covering the entire brick exterior with EIFS, the Owner would avoid having to do long term masonry repair due to Local Law 11 in New York. EIFS not only provided a solution to what would be a recurring maintenance issue, but it brought the building back to life by giving it a fresh new look. We worked hand in hand with Architect Chris Benedict to make her vision come to life. Her design utilized a variety of colors and a combination of 1”, 2”, 4” and 6” EPS board to bring out depth and dimension to a once flat façade. Most of the insulation used was 4” which significantly added to the energy efficiency of the building by providing an R-16 value. Through the use of EIFS, we were able to accomplish all these objectives.
