Southern Hotelier Selects Hebel to Secure Family’s Future

Southern Hotelier Selects Hebel to Secure Family’s Future

Challenge
John L. Williams and his associates at Williams Investment Company in Adel, Georgia were looking for a building solution that would enable them to provide superior sound insulation for guests at the company’s hotels in Tifton and Valdosta, Georgia. Over the course of more than 40 years in hotel construction, Mr. Williams had used a wide range of traditional building products, but he wanted a material that offered greater return on investment in terms of stability and long-term energy and insurance savings, as well as peace of mind.
Solution
As one of the few products that met Williams’ stringent hotel construction requirements, the team chose Hebel Autoclaved Aerated Concrete (AAC) because of its acoustical benefits, superior fire rating, insulating properties and fire and pest resistance. Mr. Williams selected Hebel AAC panels for all the hotels’ walls (interior, exterior and shafts) as well as the floor and roof to create a consistent, energy efficient envelope throughout the building.

HEBEL AAC Home Offers Serenity for Architect

AAC Home Offers Serenity for Architect

Challenge:
Asheville, N.C., residential architect Alice Dodson needed a building material that would provide breathable, masonry walls to align with her commitment to baubiologie and sustainability. Baubiologie, or building biology, analyzes outdoor and indoor living environments and aims to create an ecological solution for energy, water and material use, while enhances indoor air quality by reducing volatile organic compounds (VOC), dust, allergens and electromagnetic pollution.

Results:
HEBEL AAC was the perfect solution for Dodson’s integrated approach for sustainable living. She used HEBEL AAC blocks and panels for all of the walls and flooring throughout her 4,000 square foot house and saw immediate energy savings. HEBEL AAC’s thermal mass, coupled with solar panels and a wood stove, resulted in only $100 in gas consumption during the first year she lived in the house. “Even when we lose power, the house will stay warm for two or three days,” Dodson said.
