TDDS DONE RIGHT Seeking to introduce natural light into a school gym located within Westside Christian High School’s interior floorplate, a traditional skylight was evaluated and dismissed out of concerns for adequate illumination and hot spots. For the new Portland school, IBI Group Architects ultimately selected 20 Solatube SkyVault series M74 DS units and SkyVault daylight dimmers for daytime use, along with LED lights with timers for nighttime lighting. In addition to enhanced lighting levels and energy savings, the tubular daylighting devices lend a nice aesthetic.

NEITHER ANIMAL, NOR VEGETABLE The new ci Mineral exterior wall system incorporates a layer of mineral wool that both insulates and provides fire protection. Combined in an assembly that also includes an air and moisture barrier, the mineral wool’s ability to handle high internal temperatures means designers face no limitations on exterior colors and textures due to light reflectance values.
—Dr. Deborah Miller, head of school, Westside Christian
“In addition to providing such incredible natural light and reducing energy use, the Solatube units are attractive and fit into the overall ceiling structure in such a way that they enhance the beauty of the space.”
EnergyShield Pro www.atlasrwi.com
TWO DEMANDS, ONE PRODUCT Developers of the NoHo West mixed-use community in North Hollywood, Calif., were under the gun to meet design guidelines calling for both continuous insulation and a water resistive barrier membrane. The solution turned out to be a single product that combined both functions. EnergyShield Pro is a continuous insulation with a foil facing that, when paired with an approved tape at all joints, fulfills the purpose of a . Eliminating a separate membrane also helped reduce the overall project’s carbon footprint. CIRCLE 349
