Earlier this year, the EIFS Industry Members Association has launched a visually stimulating program, showing the benefits of EIFS from coast to coast on a range projects.

This program, titled the Quarterly Project Awards Program, will demonstrate the wide range of benefits EIFS offers. This quarter, the award goes to Dryvit Systems Inc.’s Lancaster Bible College project in Lancaster, Pa.

In 2010, the school committed itself to a $10 million capital campaign to build a central campus hub, housing the Teague Learning Commons, as well as the Charles and Gloria Jones Library. The goal was to construct the 41,000-plus-square-foot building as a “living heartbeat” of the campus, along with possible future expansions as well. The college incorporated sustainable design elements by leveraging Dryvit’s Outsulation product.

Construction broke ground in March 2011 and was completed for the opening of the new energy-efficient Commons and library during the fall 2012 semester.
