Foam Engineers’ product is aimed at creating Green construction. As contractors, we partner with many different companies on projects. For a few years now, Foam Engineers has been partnering with UIC to make Green construction and better living a reality.
UIC (Urban Improvement Construction) is a design build firm in St. Louis, Missouri. Foam Engineers has partnered with the firm on many, many homes and buildings – both new construction and remodels. We are currently partnered on the first phase of a redevelopment in the St. Louis area. The neighborhood is centered on McRee Avenue, just blocks from the beautiful Missouri Botanical Gardens.
What was once one of the worst neighborhoods in the St. Louis area has turned into a thriving urban development. UIC has focused its first phase on a 6 square block portion of the neighborhood.
The Garden Commission began the redevelopment process about 10 years ago. Their goal was to help neighborhoods around the area, encouraging community growth and green living. UIC came on board and took on a large scope of building projects. Many original homes had already been torn down or were deemed structurally unsound. Homes that were no longer safe were demolished. New homes were built on the lots, showcasing efficient green construction and materials. Homes that could be saved were remodeled. Foam Engineers was asked to join the project. Foam engineers has insulated almost all of these homes for UIC.
Foam Engineers offers a large variety of options when insulating structures. Every building has unique needs and characteristics. We analyze each project on an individual basis and come up with the most efficient and cost effective solution. We provide open cell spray foam, closed cell spray foam, exterior spray foam, blown cellulose, dense pack cellulose, blown fiberglass, dense pack fiberglass, and fiberglass batts – just to name a few. Often we come up with hybrid solutions, utilizing more than one form of insulation. This accomplishes multiple objectives, helping buildings to be as efficient as possible.
However homes are not the only jobs UIC and Foam Engineers work on together. To create a successful urban neighborhood, businesses and schools need to grow as well. Foam Engineers has helped UIC with these projects, too. In Botanical Heights, several trendy restaurants have popped up. We helped insulate some of them. Foam Engineers also helped with a remodel of an original neighborhood building, creating the City Garden Montessori School.
Foam Engineers is proud to work with UIC on projects like the Botanical Heights redevelopment in St. Louis, Missouri. As contractors of insulation, we love creating custom solutions to help homes and buildings perform to the highest standards.
