Weather Barrier System.
Grand Lake - near Tulsa, OK
10.24 MSF of ForceField® Panels
When a property is situated on a hillside right along the lake, it’s important to shield its exterior so unwanted air and water stay out of the structure. So, when a team was building a vacation home on Grand Lake in Northeast Oklahoma, they made sure to choose materials that would not only streamline the sheathing process, but also stand strong against the elements. The project lead and owner of the vacation home had partnered with Georgia-Pacific in the past and had a great experience with supply, communication and field support, which made choosing ForceField® Weather Barrier System an easy decision.

Developers who rely on merely comparing upfront material costs when determining budget savings can easily miss the big picture—leading to a less-than-successful result once the property is developed. To determine true cost savings, it’s important to evaluate holistically: looking for savings everywhere from materials to labor to schedules and more. For the team developing Liberty Creek Village, a multi-family apartment community, one of the greatest sources of overall budget savings came from a material with a higher initial price point that reaped bigger time and labor savings overall.
The first plan isn’t always the best. That’s what the development team behind the new Sur Club multifamily project has come to know. But with some foresight, a little extra research, and willingness to improve, you can make the best plan into a completed success. This was the case when the contracting team at Capstone Building Corporation decided to substitute for a better, integrated sheathing with a water resistive barrier and air barrier on a luxury multifamily job and wound up saving a lot of time and budget in the process.
