'Eco Office' Features Stucco/Coating Exterior

Monday, May 10, 2010

Comment | More

Sto Corp. reports that its StoPowerall™ stucco system was selected as the exterior cladding for the Southface Energy Institute's Eco Office in Atlanta, a LEED Platinum-designated project.

The Southface Energy Insitute is a nonprofit organization that promotes sustainable homes, workplaces, and communities.

The three-story, approximately-10,000-square-foot building is said to serve as a model of environmentally responsible commercial construction, with innovative features for saving energy and water, reducing waste, reusing and recycling materials, and maintaining a healthy indoor environment. The building houses a two-story classroom, two private offices, and work stations for the staff. 

The exterior cladding is composed of stucco over insulated concrete forms, with an exterior finish coat provided by another Sto product, Silco, a silicone-containing textured elastomeric coating formulated to provide a high degree of weather resistance. The system is billed as offering a durable, impact-resistant, colorfast exterior-wall cladding, with light weight and flexibility. The water-based finish coating is offered in a range of colors or custom tints, and is reported to resist mold, mildew, and algae, and bridge hairline cracks.

Dennis Creech, Southface executive director, said the Eco Office is the result of a collaboration of Southface; the architects Aeck & Sargent; Eco Office Contractors: A Green Building Consortium (five builders); and suppliers of "off-the-shelf green building products and technologies" such as the stucco cladding system from Sto. Creech described the stucco system as "an environmentally friendly and commonly used product that fit perfectly into our plans."
 
Lisa Petsko, Sto Corp. product manager, added that "Durability is a factor in green building, and stucco is a durable, economically effective product that will stand up in any type of climate."
