AIA LA BUILDING PERFORMANCE AND REGULATION COMMITTEE MEETING - Thursday, November 8, 2012

WHAT MAKES A THERMOPLASTIC ROOF SUSTAINABLE

In a time when words like "Green", "Sustainable", "Environmentally Friendly" and "All Natural" are being used to describe every product you buy; it is difficult to know exactly what you should be looking for when making a purchase....and roofing is no exception. What makes a thermoplastic roof sustainable is an in-depth look at what makes a roofing system really sustainable and how to look past all the "Green Washing"

THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 8, 2012
6:00 PM - 8:00 PM

LOCATION: DLR GROUP
3130 Wilshire Blvd. Sixth Floor Santa Monica, CA 90403

SPEAKER
Paul Phillips CSI, CDT
Senior Technical Sales Representative
Sika Sarnafil
A Division of Sika Corporation
10701 Holder Street
Cypress, CA 90630

The presentation is AIA CES approved and qualifies for one learning unit.

Learning Objectives:

  • At the end of this program, participants will be able to identify key sustainability attributes of roofing systems such as:

  • The importance of proven performance and membrane durability (the longer the roofing system lasts, the less roofing systems end up in a landfill)

  • Understanding the difference between post-industrial, pre-consumer and post-consumer recycling and the benefits of choosing a product that recycles post-consumer back into new membrane (full circle recycling).

  • Knowledge of the natural fire resistance properties of some roofing membranes and a review of how different fire resistant roofing membranes perform when actually on fire.

  • An understanding of the term "life-cycle" and how specifying a roofing system that has a low impact on life-cycle is beneficial not only for environment, but an owner's wallet.
