Projects

Vacuum Insulated Panel Test CCHRC is testing how Vacuum Insulated Panels can be assembled to achieve extremely high R-values in cold climate homes.
Structural Insulated Panels Structural Insulated Panels (SIPs) are prefabricated building materials used in residential construction in Alaska. This project prepared resources for homeowners who want to learn about SIPs, where they are used in cold climates, and considerations for Alaska.
Reflective Insulation Study Reflective insulation can be effective in reducing solar heat gain in hot, sunny climates but is less effective in cold climates. This project evaluated the effectiveness of reflective insulations in cold climate construction.
Durable Envelopes for Cold Climates CCHRC is developing and testing building envelope designs that can withstand cold climates and healthy indoor humidity levels. The Mobile Test Lab has nine test wall bays, each with a different configuration of studs and insulation—including a control wall with fiberglass batt insulation.
Geopolymer Cements CCHRC did a high level analysis of the local market potential for geopolymer cements, including an assessment of available local materials, potential of local product manufacturing, and potential economic feasibility.
