Westwood High School - Blythewood, SC
The forward-thinking design team of this state-of-the-art 340,000 sq. ft. high school chose the EnduraMax™ High-Performance Wall System for its ability to satisfy multiple design goals with a single product.

Apartment Complex Rehab
Father and son management team Col. Pete and Clancy Knaup were challenged with updating a 30-year-old, three-story apartment complex that required both a cosmetic facelift and energy retrofit. EnduraMax enabled them to solve both dilemmas with one integrated solution. Because of EnduraMax's excellent energy efficiency, the project qualified for funding from the U.S. Housing and Urban Development (HUD) Green Retrofit Program. "I had no idea that something like this was available. We got the fabulous stone look we wanted with the insulation value we needed, all in one product," Col. Pete said.
Oldcastle employees trained the contractor and masonry crews on product installation and built on-site life-sized color samples for product selection. "The masonry contractor loved the product because of the simplicity," Col. Pete said.

ReVISION House Orlando 2011
Before renovations, the ReVISION House Orlando 2011 was a typical Florida concrete block-style home. While originally built with a highly durable wall system able to withstand termites and hurricanes, it lacked quality insulation.
EnduraMax was selected to provide a considerable insulation improvement. Prior to renovation, the R2.5 walls were a major contributor to both heating and cooling loads. The "before" walls led to loads of 6.8 MBTU to heating and 14 MBTU to cooling on an annual basis. After renovating with EnduraMax, annual loads dropped to 1.9 MBTUH for heating, and 2.5 MBTUH for cooling: a reduction of nearly 80%. These dramatic reductions not only save energy directly, but also improve occupant comfort and allow for a much smaller HVAC system, providing additional savings.
