Page 100 of 107 July 2017 • 99 INNOVATIONS REPORT INSULATED PANELS Value analysis of any building system or prod- uct requires a holistic view of the project and the objectives the client appreciates the most in their own measure of success. Finding a balance between cost, schedule, quality, and appearance shouldn't feel like a compromise on any commercial building project regardless of scope or complexity. Thanks in part to the dynamic range of possibilities of today's insulated architectural precast panels, cli- ents, designers, and builders can realize virtually any design imaginable with a high-performance building envelope that builds quickly and is readily in line with market costs. John Myers is a Product Specialist at ACH Foam Tech- nologies, Westminster, Colo., 855/597-4427. The use of Enterprise Precast insulated panels resulted in cost savings over rain screen systems for the Bloch School of Business.

It's time to work smarter with Vacuworx. Now instead of having to break up concrete and pick up the mess, you can simply cut sections and remove them quickly and quietly with the SS 2 Vacuum Lifting System attached to a skid steer. This creates a safer, cleaner work environment without damaging the sub grade. And you're able to move on to the next job faster! But don't just take our word for it. The real proof comes from contractors who use Vacuworx to gain a competitive edge on their jobs. "The SS 2 was more efficient than a jackhammer or other methods we've used in the past…We pulled 46 squares, each weighing about 1,200 lb, in less than an hour. You couldn't do that with a hammer and scoop if you were the best operator in the world." — Beau Hahn and Jon Rhoades, Bedrock Concrete LLC Visit to schedule a demo today! "It is kind of amazing."
