Commercial Projects

Build your business with value added over other methods of construction. Create a building that portrays your value and products. SunTerra EnergyBlock allows you to design the appropriate exterior façade of your choosing. Your customers will appreciate the added comfort and reduced energy use in your building. You have chosen to be a good steward to your community by building a very sustainable structure. If you choose to expose the decorative masonry surface on the exterior and not take advantage of the thermal battery effect, this wall system will give you the ability to insulate and wire the interior surface more efficiently at less expense than using wood or steel studs.

System “C” has been developed to meet the construction needs for commercial/industrial buildings. The exterior wall system is constructed without the use of wood or steel components. This eliminates the possibility of wood and steel degradation over time.

The typical wood and steel components have been replaced with PVC members reducing thermal bridging and moisture problems. Exceptions are store fronts and doors, if they have metal frames.
