In Dayton, Texas, northeast of Houston, a new community Center is being built for the community of Cedar Ridge. The 2,105 square foot structure was originally designed with conventional framing. The architect, Stan Cromartie, chose to amend the previous design to the Bautex system because he truly believes it provides better value to the client and the people that will be using the facility.
The main factor that led to Bautex being chosen was: storm safety. With Dayton being so close to the coast, and in a prime hurricane prone area, the concern is well founded. With it’s FEMA 361 Storm Safety rating, the Bautex wall system was ideal for this coastal project.
The Bautex Wall System, which simplifies design and construction and delivers superior performance, was chosen for this community project as it meets their storm safety concerns, need for energy efficiency and easily meets code requirements, along with its simplicity in getting started.
According to architect Stan Cromartie: “Our firm is always looking beyond the status quo for ways to improve and Bautex has provided an excellent option for us to introduce with confidence. In addition to that, how can you beat it being a Texas-born and bred product?”
