Oishei Children’s Hospital to the Buffalo General Medical Center. The John R. Oishei Children’s Hospital hopes to be recognized as an innovative and high quality provider in Western New York and the surrounding areas. The hospital is expected to open and begin servicing patient in early 2017.
SOPREMA’s SOPRASEAL® Xpress G air and vapor barrier was ideal for this project. The exterior grade, inorganic faced gypsum board with an air and vapor barrier factory applied to the exterior surface, is the first and only ABAA evaluated assembly. SOPRASEAL® Xpress G boards are mechanically fastened to the structure using corrosion resistant SOPRASEAL® Xpress G Screws. A 6 inch self-adhered strip of SOPRASEAL® Stick 1100T is then installed over all board joints.
