Kingspan Insulation Supports 16th Annual HomeAid Atlanta Essentials Drive
Kingspan Insulation is committed to the communities it serves, as the company believes a powerful community spirit is essential in any working environment. The company passionately believes in getting involved with its local community.
Because of these beliefs, Kingspan Insulation’s office in Atlanta, Georgia, which is home to the company’s North American headquarters, gave strong support to the 16th annual HomeAid Atlanta Essentials Drive.
HomeAid is an American charity that aims to build better lives for homeless people across the United States. It helps to build new lives for homeless families and individuals through both housing and community outreach.
The Atlanta drive was in aid of homeless mothers, infants and toddlers in the area. Staff at Kingspan Insulation’s Atlanta office collected as much baby items as possible to donate to the drive.
The items, including food and diapers, were delivered to several homeless shelters across the Atlanta area just in time for Mother's Day.
Through the generosity of builders, their trade partners, financial institutions, and the public, HomeAid has provided shelter and care for more than 240,000 people in America who have become homeless due to circumstances beyond their control.
Staff at Kingspan Insulation’s North American headquarters were delighted to contribute to the charity’s great work.
Kingspan Insulation has worked on many exciting projects in North America, including projects at the University of Central Florida.
The university is home to the sixth largest population of students in the U.S. To provide housing for them, American Campus Communities, the nation’s largest developer, owner and manager of quality student accommodation, recently opened Plaza on University.
These furnished, modern living spaces feature fully equipped kitchens, a 24-hour state-of-the-art fitness center and an Academic Success Center with group study lounges.
Plaza on University was built using Kingspan’s energy efficiency and moisture management products designed to provide exterior protection for a building. The apartments will be protected from moisture intrusion caused by the torrential rains and high humidity that is common in Central Florida.
Some of them include recycled bricks and wooden beams removed from the old structure and repurposed in common areas, a ‘green roof’ rainwater recycling system and a high-efficiency heating, ventilation and air-conditioning (HVAC) system.
