Jilin College of Urban Architecture is an institution of higher learning aiming to foster professionals specialized in urban planning, urban construction, urban management and other fields in the industry. In order to expand the campus, improve the teaching and research environment and attract more students that are interested to construction, the College planned to build new campus in the suburb of Changchun city in 2012. The new campus is put into use by the end of 2015, the total area up to 500,000 square meters on the completion of the project.
The College being an institution of higher learning designed for building, the authority attached great importance to building standards and construction quality of new campus, and suppliers of building materials also had to go through strict scrutiny. Jilin Province lies in regions that are cold with a long winter, so the installation of building insulation materials in a certain type of thickness has become a common practice in the industry. The insulation materials that are not only of high quality but also meet the needs of the owners become a key factor for the owner and developer to consider in the project bidding.
The major requirement of Jilin College of Urban Architecture is to provide teachers and students with a safe and quiet environment for learning, and to secure the durability and energy-saving property of buildings when in use. After the negotiation between the authority, developer and other parties, it was found out that thermal insulation materials of about 150,000 square meters were needed for the new campus, the total supply up to 800 tons. This posed an even higher demand on the timely supply of insulation materials. A large number of stone wool suppliers in China participated in bidding, bringing increased difficulty to competition.
ROCKWOOL earned the trust of the owner and developer with excellent quality of its products, experienced technical service and timely, adequate supply, and became the supplier of stone wool insulation material for the project.
The professional technical service team went through communication with the developer, and agreed on the external wall insulation system for the project. This system has excellent dimensional stability, high hydrophobic rate, well-fledged construction technology and other advantages. The usage of ROCKWOOL stone wool as insulation materials can better meet the building requirements in fire safety, noise reduction, durability, energy saving, emission reduction and other aspects. In the process of delivery, both authority and developer were very satisfied with ROCKWOOL stone wool performance. They spoke highly of the quality of ROCKWOOL stone wool, and appreciated the supporting and follow-up work of ROCKWOOL colleagues from sales and technical services department.
