Excellence in Energy Management
Excellence in Materials Management
This project submitted by F.A. Taylor & Son, Inc. demonstrated the best application of RoofPoint Material Management Credits among projects submitted in 2013, achieving a score of 31 points. The project features a number of sustainable roofing practices, including material recycling and a project waste management plan.
Excellence in Water Management
After the devastating floods caused by Hurricane Sandy in 2012, GSM Roofing had to completely renovate their facilities located near the Cocalico Creek in Central Pennsylvania. In addition to the renovation, GSM installed a new vegetated roofing system on their facility to reduce storm water runoff into the creek and help prevent future flooding. The new roof also provides a unique area for company employees to meet and relax.
Excellence in Innovation
In response to a wide range of site conditions, including an unusual roof shape, insufficient roof pitch in some locations for a typical steep slope roofing, anchorage issues with the existing roof deck, and low roof and wall clearances, this project submitted by project architect ADC Engineering, Inc., illustrates how a number of important sustainable roofing technologies can be combined to overcome site conditions resulting in a durable and ascetically attractive roofing system.
Excellence in Reroofing
This 69,000 square foot roofing project submitted and installed by United Materials, LLC, was the highest-scoring reroofing project for 2013, earning 29.5 total points. Key sustainable roofing features include high energy efficiency and durability as well as a long-term roof asset management program.
Excellence in Durability and Life Cycle Management
The 2013 award for Excellence in Durability and Life Cycle Management has been given for the second year in a row to Hutchinson Design Group, Ltd. for the design and oversight of two Private Manufacturing Facility Roof Recover projects. 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.
Private Sector Leadership
This 175,000 square foot reroofing project sets a new benchmark for sustainable retail roof design. Featuring a reflective, energy efficient, and highly durable roofing system, the SuperTarget project also includes an innovative roof fastening technology that virtually eliminates roof seams at fastening locations and allows for effective removal and recycling of the roofing membrane at the end of its service life.
Public Sector Leadership
The new San Diego County Operations Center is designed to be a symbol of sustainability for all of San Diego, and the building's roofing system features every key RoofPoint strategy available for building designers. In addition to a roof designed to provide the ultimate in performance and life cycle endurance, this unique roof features a rooftop terrace, a vegetated green roof, and photovoltaic solar panel array on trellises, which also serve to produce shading.
