Chas Svec, Inc. manufactures Omni Block in Cleveland. The masonry firm owned by Danny Zavarello utilized Omni Block in the Rocky River City High School expansion project in Rocky River, Ohio. The 12″ Omni Block was selected for the energy efficiency and the durability of a single-wythe masonry wall. The architect desired to leave both the exterior and interior faces exposed, which Omni Block is designed to accomplish. Notice the 3 layers of insulation and 4 layers of masonry face shells as depicted in the construction photos.
Mr. Zavarello found that, “Laying Omni Block was the same as typical CMU and the inserts went right in”.
