Munger Construction Builds New Headquarters For American Polyfilm
State Of The Art Facility For Growing Demand And Challenging New Products
By: Pat Munger Construction Company, Inc.
"We selected Munger because we've always had a good feeling about their people and with the way they do business," said Victor Cassella, President, American Polyfilm. "Their traits include straight talk at meetings, being easy to understand, receiving sterling reference checks, and they were skilled and graceful at accommodating our changes. They were our partner through all our decision steps".
This new 27,500 sq. ft. Varco Pruden pre-engineered steel building features a 4-story steel tower that rises above the roofline to enable the blown film manufacturing process and to allow the film to cool and cure as it is drawn upward.
Architectural elements include careful window placement, single slope roof, window and door canopies, galvalume siding for an aeronautical look, polished concrete floors in offices, ceramic tile in bathroom and shower stalls, stainless steel cladded reception counters, and interior glass and wall systems.
Energy efficiency is a building hallmark. Skylights and windows provide natural daylighting with LED lighting throughout the facility. The EnergyStar rated HVAC system creates a positive air pressure environment that is "pumped up” with more filtered air than the outdoor space and minimizes the amount of untreated air infiltrating the building when doors are opened. The sloped roofing system was designed to maximize solar gain for a planned future PV Solar system installation. Exceeding the State of Connecticut's energy efficiency building code by 30% earned a $90,000 rebate from Eversource.
