The National Institute of Building Sciences has awarded the Permasteelisa Group for its proprietary façade technology called mfree-SCCF.
This technology received the Honor Award, First Place for the High-Performance Innovation in the National Institute of Building Sciences 2017 Beyond Green™ High Performance Building Awards, a unique program which recognizes the initiatives that shape, inform and catalyze the high-performance building market, as well as the real-world application of high-performance design and construction practices.
The award was assigned during the National Institute of Building Sciences Sixth Annual Conference and Expo, held at the Mandarin Oriental Hotel, in Washington, DC.
Alberto Franceschet (Executive VP Business Development & Sales) and Alex Cox (Business Development Manager - West Coast) from Permasteelisa North America, attended the ceremony to receive the award and to present the mfree-SCCFfaçade, highlighting the great opportunities that this high-performance and sustainable technology can offer to the audience, mostly composed by building industry leaders and US Real Estate industry representatives.
The mfree-SCCF is a cost efficient façade that significantly contributes to high environmental ratings of a building, offering abundant availability of daylight and light-thermal acoustic comfort.
It is designed in such a manner that no contamination by dust and condensation is permitted inside the internal cavity of this special double skin façade. All of this without compromising the aesthetics of the buildings.
The mfree-SCCF façade has been already employed by Permasteelisa in important realizations throughout the world; among them, 200 George Street (Sydney, Australia), JTI International HQ, (Geneva, Switzerland), One New Burlington Place(London, UK), LEO (Frankfurt, Germany), Roche Building (Basel, Switzerland).
