Uptown Bay City transforms a former industrial crane-manufacturing site into vib

When developers of Uptown Bay City (Bay City, Mich.) began transforming the former industrial site into a mixed-use, self-sustaining riverfront community, they faced a design challenge. How could they incorporate greater expanses of glass to maximize views of the waterfront without the trade-off in energy efficiency?

To fill the buildings with light without degrading the thermal performance of the building envelope, architects chose Dow Corning® Architectural Insulation Modules (AIM™).

   

These thin-profile units combine the aesthetics and convenience of curtainwall construction with the energy-savings benefits of high-performance Dow Corning® Vacuum Insulation Panels. Measuring only 1", the Dow Corning AIM™ units installed on Uptown Bay City's office complex deliver R- 16 performance—a significant increase in thermal resistance for slim-wall construction. Integrating seamlessly with curtainwall components, the modules are simple to install in most standard and custom glazing systems.
