“EnergyEdge is the ultimate solution for preventing heat loss through slab edge. This is the solution we have been looking for. EnergyEdge is as necessary for building as is insulated windows and walls.” – Brett Prather, Principal Architectural Innovations

“EnergyEdge is new to our design-build team, especially in the context of a 310,000 commercial office building governed by a market-rate construction budget. But we’ve embraced this idea and see so much value in understanding how to use EnergyEdge to its fullest potential now and in the future.” – Clint Blew, Senior Design Architect Burns & McDonnell Architecture.
