Florida State Capitol: Got the bathroom exhaust systems into code compliance

The Florida State capitol building is the centerpiece of downtown Tallahassee. The 22-story structure towers over the entire city as it serves as Florida’s home to its executive and legislative branches of state government. During a building retrofit project involving several of the building’s bathrooms, engineers noted that much of the existing exhaust ductwork had never been sealed. Aside from building code regulations that require sealed ductwork, the contractors knew that sealed ducts are paramount to maintaining and ensuring proper exhaust. So while new fans and other equipment were being spec’d in to the original contractor bids, lead engineers familiar with Aeroseal also specified that the pricing of the innovative duct sealing solution be included in the selection process.
