The new 7 World Trade Center in New York City towers at a majestic 52 stories (741 feet) high and covers a staggering 1.7 million square-feet of floor space. The prime focus at the new World Trade Center 7 is occupant safety, durability, and the use of environmentally friendly materials. To improve the air distribution efficiency and minimize air conditioning leaks, CertainTeed® SoftTouch™ Duct Wrap insulating materials have been selected for the external insulation of the building’s heating, ventilation and air conditioning ducts.
Acoustic control is always a vital factor in designing facilities that host live performances of music, theater and dance. Unwanted noise, such as the sound of mechanical equipment operation, is simply unacceptable; therefore the Kansas City engineers specified CertainTeed® ToughGard® 2 Textile Duct Liner for their insulation needs.
The building serves as the headquarters for Comcast Corporation, the largest provider of cable services in the United States with 24.4 million cable customers throughout the country. Towering over the Philadelphia skyline at an amazing 58 stories (975 feet), the city’s new Comcast Center is a high-performance sustainable building, with an abundance of features that will conserve energy and reduce impact on the environment.
