Cornerstone Kids Built Insulsteel Tough
Cornerstone Kids plans to outsource the design and construction of its Aiken, South Carolina location and its projected 200 additional franchise locations to national award winning Insulsteel™ Building Sciences, LLC, headquartered in Charleston, South Carolina. Insulsteel provides architectural, engineering and manufacturing systems for constructing High Performance buildings for both the residential and commercial building markets.
Insulsteel has designed the EcoShell™, which is an innovative building enclosure system that significantly reduces energy costs, withstands hurricane winds up to 200 MPH, provides thermal insulation values equivalent to 400% greater than traditional wood framing and can meet commercial building code requirements for U.L. two-hour rated firewalls. The U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC) named Insulsteel as the Top U.S. Builder with revenues under $100 million. The U.S. Department of Energy (D.O.E.) has named Insulsteel to its “Top 1% of US Builders” in recognition of constructing ZERO ENERGY Buildings.
Since 2014, the US Environmental Protection Agency has named Insulsteel as a “Partner” in the EPA Indoor AirPLUS program. The Partner Program recognizes leading organizations who promote safer, healthier, and more comfortable indoor environments.
Cornerstone Kids research has determined that no other U.S. building enclosure system compares to Insulsteel’s high-performance standards in building design, construction costs and most importantly, a safe environment for our kids’ health, well-being, and cognitive development.
