Converting a cold and drafty quonset hut into a comfortable office space.
Foam Layer Depth
R Value after Instalation
Days to completion
This project came to us from a client who was converting a quonset hut into an office space. Quonset huts are composed of galvanized steel on a wooden or metal frame; so no insulation to speak of.
We started by applying a 3 inch layer of closed cell spray foam, bringing the buildings R value up to 21. This layer provides a thermal protection, keeping the heat out in the summer months, and in during the winter. It also provides a great acoustic barrier, so that outside noise won't be an issue for the office staff.
The final step was to apply a custom colored thermal barrier, which provides fire protection, and is often required in commercial buildings.
Businesses are beginning to realize that they don't their offices to be in a skyscraper in the business district. Converting the likes of old warehouses, quonset huts and shipping containers to office space is a trend that's only picking up pace. It can be a huge saving for companies to move to this kind of space.
It also allows for complete customization to the business needs. The only issue is that these spaces aren't built for comfort. That's where spray foam can help. Thermal and acoustic barriers are easily created with closed cell spray foam, creating a comfortable office environment.
