Smart Buildings

Spartan Buildings Inc. We integrate the fundamental components of building technologies

Smart Buildings

Spartan Buildings integrates the fundamental components of building technologies into graduated automation levels. Smart buildings deliver useful building services that make occupants productive, for example, light and illumination, thermal comfort, air quality, physical security, water efficiencies, and energy conservation.

The best part of smart buildings is that building owners achieve these comfort and efficiencies at the lowest cost and environmental impact over the building lifecycle. Reaching this vision requires adding intelligence from the beginning of the design phase via the integrative process to the end of the building’s useful life.

Smart buildings use wireless and automation technology to connect various subsystems, which typically operate independently so that these systems can share information to optimize total building performance.

Smart buildings look beyond the building equipment within their four walls and allow the building operators and occupants to control and monitor the facility and compare its successful operations with comparisons to online databases of similar size buildings worldwide. LEED certification requires this type of detailed results.

Connecting to Save Money

A smart building can be considered a integrated system of interconnected building subsystems; it has been compared to the internet of things, which connects computer and appliances into one larger super-network. In a smart building, the integration of systems like lights, HVAC, solar and Powerwall battery utilization to reduce operating costs.

Solid Core Buildings

Solid Core is commonly called Structural Insulated Panels (SIPs)

Structural Insulated Panels

Solid Core is commonly called Structural Insulated Panels (SIPs) which are high performance building panels and are made by sandwiching a core of rigid foam insulation between two skins of wood structural panels, typically oriented stand board (OSB) or plywood. The foam core of the panel is typically composed of expanded polystyrene, structural adhesive is used to adhere the foam cores to the skins of the panel in the lamination process.

The SIP fabrication process usually begins with a CAD drawing of the building. The CAD drawings are converted into shop drawings that can be plugged directly into SIP Factory fabrication machine or used to measure and cut panels by hand. Chases or channels for electrical wiring are cut or formed into the foam core and the core is recessed around the edges to accept the connection splines or dimensional lumber. By fabricating SIPs under factory controlled conditions, SIPs achieves tolerances far more precise than wood framing.

More Energy Efficiency

Spartan Solid Core building systems reduce heating and cooling costs by about 50%.
Broad Custom Design Capabilities

– Larger clear-spans up to 100′ wide and 24′ tall
– Vaulted ceilings
– Solid exterior and interior continuous OSB or plywood sheeting

Durability

Solid core buildings are more impact resistant. Also, something very important to those that have or want a heated shop in Minnesota is that the solid core closed cell foam walls stop the transfer of moisture that results in rust and corrosion. Your building is an investment… it should last a long time.

Quieter

Better acoustics for a quieter building. The dense foam restricts sound from passing through much more than conventional insulation. Your family and neighbors will appreciate that.

Hurricane Proof

The good news for people living in vulnerable areas is that robust hurricane-resistant houses can create an effective first line of defence against natural disasters. Utilising a host of special design features, these models offer a safer, stronger dwelling to weather the storm when nature does its worst.

Fire Proof

Fireproofing is rendering something (structures, materials, etc.) resistant to fire, or incombustible; or material for use in making anything fire-proof.

Smart Schools – Business Incubation

In 2015, the World Bank stated that educating all children worldwide would require the construction of 10 million new classrooms in more than 100 countries
