Foxwoods Resort Casino (the largest in North America) offers a vast array of gaming in seven casinos; AAA Four-Diamond hotels, restaurants from gourmet to quick service, world-renowned spas, award-winning golf, state-of-the-art theaters and exclusive retailers. To expand its shopping offering, Foxwoods partnered with Tanger Factory Outlet Centers, Inc. to build a new $115 million Tanger Outlet adjacent to the casino, providing convenient access for guests.
One stipulation of the project before approval was granted and construction began was the land below the building would be disturbed as little as possible since it sits on sacred land owned by the Mashantucket Pequot Tribal Nation. After several rounds of design, it was decided most of the structure would be built on stilts above the rocky terrain. Since the first floor of the building isn’t slab-on-grade, the architect had to determine how best to insulate the underside of the floor as it’s exposed to open air below. The original specification called for a suspended ceiling system to be installed below the floor with fiberglass insulation laid on top and the cavity heated to keep the floor warm.
After detailed performance and cost analysis, the specification was changed to the closed-cell Staycell® HYBRID Spray Foam Insulation System (sprayed directly to the underside of the metal deck), providing the client higher performance at lower installed and operating costs
