    R-Control® SIPs Chosen to Frame & Insulate Robert Redford's Sundance Conference Center
    Denver, CO — ACH Foam Technologies’ R-Control® Structural Insulated Roof Panels (SIPs) were chosen to frame and insulate the Redford Conference Center in Sundance, Utah. Sundance officially opened the new Redford Conference Center on September 16, 2010. The Conference Center is the latest fulfillment of Robert Redford's vision for the Sundance Resort, near Mount Timpanogos: a place that integrates artistic expression, environmental responsibility and successful commerce.

    In the spring of 2010, actor Robert Redford, owner of Sundance Resort, worked closely with Salerno Architects to select environmentally friendly and energy-efficient products for the new conference center. R-Control® Structural Insulated Panels were selected for their inherent energy efficiency and structural performance. The exceptional strength of SIPs provide the ability to resist snow loads while spanning over custom built timber frame trusses. SIPs were also selected for the project because of their reputation for efficient installation and labor time savings.

    According to Shawn Pollard, Project Superintendant at R & O Construction, “The R-Control SIPs product was exceptionally quick and efficient to install on the roof areas of the conference center. This allowed us to move forward on the interior work.” A total of 15,152 square feet of 8-1/4” and 12-1/4” R-Control SIPs were used to frame the three roof areas of the Center.

    This environmentally friendly building provides nearly 3,500 square feet of meeting space featuring reception areas that wrap the building and transition the outdoors with the interiors.
