Hurricane Restoration And Planning For The Next One

Hurricane Restoration and Planning for the Next One

In the aftermath of a devastating storm, it behooves property owners to carefully assess damaged structures and consider restoration and repairs that will mitigate future storm damage. Whether the plan is to repair, restore or rebuild a storm-ravaged building, there are many resilient design solutions today that can help withstand high winds and water damage in the future. Today’s state-of-the-art building materials can help fortify structures against hurricane hazards: winds, flying debris, and flooding from rain or storm surges. Cost-effective, hurricane-resistant building materials and technology do exist and can help the built environment withstand these extreme weather events.

Sto Provides Iconic Exterior For New Jersey Residential Complex

Sto Provides Iconic Exterior for New Jersey Residential Complex

333 Grand on the waterfront in the Liberty Harbor area of Jersey City, N.J. is a new 18-story, 80,000 square-foot, multi-family, mixed use complex offering the latest in luxury and style. The building’s iconic façade is especially decorative, featuring a stunning curved façade, oversized windows, multiple textured surfaces and vibrant colors – all of which were crafted using Sto’s high-caliber exterior insulation and finish systems. The developer wanted an effective air and moisture barrier to weather the elements, but also didn’t want to compromise on aesthetics. With specifications calling for multiple cladding types and shapes, the designers realized it was going to be impossible to develop the structure they wanted with standard building materials. So, they turned to a StoTherm® ci wall system incorporating Sto Limestone and StoCreativ® Brick specialty finishes. The result was a win-win for all involved. Read more for the full project profile.
