Children’s Hospital of Colorado Springs
ICI’s scope of work on this project included all the Interior and Exterior Framing, Sheathing, Drywall, Hanging and Finishing, Spray Applied Air Barrier, Acoustical Ceiling Tile, and Fire Stopping. We were able to use high quality, long lasting materials to build the hospital. We were especially proud of our Gypsum Board Assemblies on this project. We used Gold Bond eXP Sheathing by National Gypsum for the sheathing and exterior gypsum panels for the soffits. USG supplied us a state-of-the-art drywall suspension system. American Gypsum and National Gypsum provided us quality sound blocking and impact resistant gypsum wall board. We installed Perm-A-Barrier VPL Low Temperature by Grace Building Products for our Vapor Retarding Air Barrier. In specific areas of the hospital, we used anti-radiation Lead-Lined Gypsum board to ensure the safety of the medical staff and patients. We are very passionate about firestopping at ICI for obvious reasons, so we only use the best material to ensure the buildings we build have the best perimeter fire containment systems in place. For Children’s Hospital, we used Owens Corning Thermafiber Safing. The Thermafiber Safing mineral wool is designed to provide industry leading fire containment, and as an added bonus, it has unique acoustical properties that help contain sound. For our Joint Firestopping, we used BlazeFrame by ClarkDietrich. This product is fantastic in that it is unaffected by wet or humid conditions.
