GreenFiber natural fiber blown-in insulation was installed as part of Cherokee Studios, a project recently named as a Top 10 Green Build Project for 2011 by The American Institute of Architect’s (AIA’s) Committee on the Environment (COTE).
GreenFiber, North America’s leading manufacturer of natural fiber insulation, an eco-friendly product, was selected for the project because the use of GreenFiber completed the “green” package the owner of the mixed-use project was seeking. GreenFiber’s products enhanced the passive design strategies to create a building that is nearly 50% more efficient than similar conventionally designed structures. The building envelope consists of blown-in cellulose R-21 insulation in the walls and R-30 in the roof.
“We used GreenFiber’s blown-in cellulose for the installation to create an efficient building shell,” said Chris Ostler with Quality Interiors, which installed the product for Cherokee Studios. “It was the owner’s wish to incorporate the product, as we had used the same for his personal residence, and he was extremely happy with the results. At Cherokee, we used GreenFiber in the exterior and interior walls.”
Cherokee Studios, located in Los Angeles, is a mixed-use, market-rate housing project that was designed to incorporate green design as a way of marketing a green lifestyle.
