Bound by the usual one-week building window, a forthcoming Extreme Makeover: Home Edition project rests on Oldcastle Precast’s Oasis Foundation Wall System. Notes Oasis Sales Manager David Bruni, The ÎExtreme MakeoverÌ team can rely on added living space in the form of a finished basement constructed in one day, regardless of the weather.
The system anchors a Rhode Island residence to be featured on an Extreme Makeover segment scheduled to air Sunday, May 4 on ABC. Components for the project were fabricated at Oldcastle’s Chase Precast operation in North Brookfield, Mass. Providing a finished basement upon installation, the customized precast foundation comes complete with foam insulation and paperless drywall. The system’s custom-designed openings for doors, windows, and beam pockets ensure tighter tolerances and, thus, no leaks, company representatives affirm.
Available throughout the New England market, the Oasis Foundation incorporates high-density concrete formulated as a sustainable ÎgreenÌ product resistant to moisture and water penetration. Finished structures provide owners a drier, mold-free and more comfortable living environment, while the system’s R-10 insulation rating curtails energy loss by 10-15 percent.
