Case Study: Flats on Savin – ‘Hushframe’

The construction of our “Flats on Savin” project is really starting to take shape. The Hush-Frame rafts have all been installed with a layer of 7/8” wood strapping. Insulation will soon be in place and the final layer of the system, drywall, will follow. One of the most important aspects of the installation has been the ‘buy-in’ of the G.C.’s sub-contractors. All of the rough electrical, fire alarm, HVAC must be isolated from the studs. This isolation prevents any transition of sound vibration to the strapping and the drywall. Bald Hill Builders and their subs have been working hard to ensure that all the roughs are fastened to the strapping. In addition, when the drywall is instal
