Owens Corning Canada

PROJECT DESCRIPTION

The glass fibre plant is located in a residential community near a park. To reduce noxious air emissions from natural gas used in the glass fibre manufacturing process, the owner added an oxygen producing unit to the site. Noise regulations required that the oxygen plant addition not raise noise levels in the community.

SCOPE OF WORK

Design, supply and installation of the structural steel and acoustic envelope including acoustic maintenance doors, personnel doors, and ventilation system for a VSA (Vacuum Swing Absorption) ISO4C Oxygen Plant at the Owens Corning Composites Plant in Guelph, Ontario. 

ACOUSTICAL REQUIREMENTS

The building was designed to meet the noise level regulation of 10 dBA below ambient. The performance target was achieved using INNOVA’s wall systems with Transmission Loss ratings of STC 49 and STC 58.
