We’re mostly KU Jayhawk fans here at PROSOCO.
Many of us are KU graduates — not me, but my spouse is, and most of us live in Lawrence, home to the University of Kansas. And yes, the football team is struggling now, but not too long ago, they won the Orange Bowl. And basketball… well, it was invented here.
But PROSOCO is an equal-opportunity manufacturer. So when PROSOCO R-GUARD Spray Wrap, a fluid-applied, vapor-permeable air and water-resistive barrier was specified for and then installed by specialty contractor ARID Resources, Omaha, for the incredible new Hendricks Training Center at arch-rival University of Nebraska, we didn’t say a word.
The $18.7 million addition to the university’s Bob Devaney Sports Center opened Oct. 13. It features amenities by the ton — wooden lockers with built-in iPads, for instance.
The building will also be energy-efficient due to Spray Wrap helping to stop air and water leaks through the building’s exterior walls. That will also help the building stay more comfortable for the occupants.
Alas, since the complex is a training facility for men’s and women’s basketball teams, and the wrestling team, it may actually help the Cornhuskers come onto the court or mat better prepared than they would be if they had trained in a building that leaked air and energy.
