Hufcor is honored to be part of The National Building Museum’s ‘Making Room’ Exhibit which opens Nov. 18 in Washington, D.C.

The exhibit itself showcases the latest solutions designed to meet the growing housing needs of America’s diverse households. The exhibition examines cutting edge approaches such as micro apartments in New York City; shared housing experiments in the D.C. area; backyard accessory cottages in Seattle; tiny houses that are helping the formerly homeless in Austin; and the boom in co-housing communities nationwide; among other advances.

While Hufcor is well-known for movable wall systems within commercial market segments such as education, office, hospitality and convention centers, the solutions for this exhibit are to promote architectural thought expansion for future shifts in demographics and lifestyle changes.

More specifically, this installation shows how movable walls can enhance multi-family construction. Separation of space allows developers the ability to achieve multi-purpose functionality within pre-defined living quarters. We will have more details to you in the next few weeks. We’re very excited about this exhibit! For more information go to https://www.nbm.org/exhibition/making-room/

 

The Science of Sound Part VII: Beating Flanking Paths

The first step to beating flanking paths is to look at how all of the elements work together from floor to roof-the partition, the space between the ceiling and the roof, the floor, even HVAC ductwork can help or hinder flanking paths.

Shoddy construction, customary construction practices, or poor installation of the partition can all contribute to the leaks, known as flanking paths.
