2012 RoofPoint Excellence in Design Award Recipients
Excellence in Energy Management
Excellence in Materials Management
This reroofing project features a zero-landfill, complete closed-loop recycling of a 20+ year-old single ply roof to provide an additional 20+ years of useful service with minimal additional environmental impact. To assure a long and successful roof service life, the project also includes a long-term roof management program, high R-value roof insulation and a highly reflective roof surface to minimize energy costs and heat island effect.
Excellence in Water Management
This project features a comprehensive approach to sustainable urban roofing, featuring an extensive rooftop farming operation that reduces storm water runoff, mitigates the urban heat island effect and provides nearby businesses with fresh produce. The roofing system also features high levels of insulation, a redundant and durable waterproofing system, and extensive use of recycled materials.
Excellence in Life Cycle Management
The Hutchinson Design Group, Ltd. received the 2012 award for its design and oversight of 4 high-performance roof system installations. Each roofing system features levels of roof insulation ranging from R-33 to R-66, a durable roof membrane system designed to provide 30+ years of service life, and extensive attention to critical durability and energy details within the overall roof design.
Excellence in Innovation
This project serves as an integral part of the Cancer Center's unique integration of meditation into their cancer therapy. Every element lends itself to contemplation: quiet shaded alcoves for one-on-one patient-therapist discussions, 3 fountains linked by a rock-lined dry creek bed and the ever-present labyrinth used as a tool to instruct patients about finding their way through crisis with spiritual growth.
Excellence in Reroofing
This 490,000 square foot roofing project was the highest scoring reroofing project submitted in 2012, earning 27.5 points. Key sustainable roofing features include high energy efficiency and durability as well as a long-term roof asset management program.
This new roof project provides a showcase for best-of-class sustainable roofing practice that can be applied anywhere in the world. Key features include: high R-value roof design with reduced thermal breaks and integral air barrier; increased roof membrane thickness and high-density cover board to increase durability and service life; low VOC and high recycled content materials; and a comprehensive quality management plan with long-term roof maintenance.
During 2012, Porter Roofing Contractors, Inc. demonstrated its sustainable roofing leadership by achieving RoofPoint registration for 18 roofing projects installed for a wide variety of private and public entities across Tennessee and Alabama.
Private Sector Leadership
The roof on the new TD Ameritrade Headquarters was the highest scoring private sector project submitted in 2012, with 29.5 points. Key sustainable roofing features include high energy efficiency and durability, rooftop solar energy production, permanent fall safety protection and comprehensive roof water management.
Public Sector Leadership
In 2012, United Materials, LLC worked collaboratively with the U.S. General Services Administration to provide state-of-the-art sustainable roofing systems for multiple Denver Federal Center buildings. Key roofing features include forensic investigation using nuclear imaging, high energy efficiency and durability, high recycled content materials, and a long-term roof system management plan.
Advancing Sustainable Roofing
The roofing system on this world-class technical center offers a showcase for the best in sustainable roofing practices and serves to challenge and inspire Bridgestone's technical team to continued innovation in green technologies.
