Exterior Solutions USA installed a highly complex insulation system consisting of a thermal-break attachment grid encompassing the entire radius soffit beneath UVMC’s Bed Building in Burlington, VA.

The system included high-performance thermal clips, 5” Z-girts, and semi-rigid insulation over a radiant vapor barrier (installed by others). In the interest of exceptional project efficiency and sequencing, the crew coordinated the install around a 3D laser scan of the radius soffit underside. Using the highly detailed model, they were then able to premeasure the placement of 2,200 thermal clips. The next phase was attaching over 4,200 lin. ft of multiple sized z-girts, creating a grid-like frame with thermal break. The final step was precisely fitting 2’ x 4’ mineral wool sections between the Z-girts in preparation for the final decorative cladding. The system was secured with Rodenhouse washers and screws; Exterior Solutions USA’s preferred insulation fastening system.

Although the General Contractor allotted 7 weeks for the project, the crew completed the installation 3 weeks ahead of schedule by merit of qualified, skilled workers that understand the importance of project sequencing—from the beginning of the project to the end.
