Sustainability Starts At The Top. With Tremco, It Doesn’t End There.

F

rom the Top: Our vegetated, photovoltaic and white, reflective built-up roofs do more than securely weatherproof your facility. By reflecting heat, converting heat to power or slowing and filtering storm water, they can help facility managers and owners meet their sustainability goals, such as improved energy and water management and lower

carbon output. Using recycled content and asbestos-free materials in our roofing systems’ construction makes them even friendlier to the environment. And All Around: But that’s just the roofs. As we’ve shown by renovating our headquarters into a high-performance showcase, Tremco has solutions to improve the sustainability and longevity of the entire building envelope – walls, foundations, façades, controls and much more – through general contracting services, preventive maintenance, sealants and weatherproofing, all of which can help make your buildings less expensive to operate. Our commitment to sustainability reflects an 80-plus-year philosophy of extending buildings’ lives through restoration and retrofitting. To see how we’ve converted our own 40-year-old headquarters into a leading example of sustainability, visit www.tremcogreenhq.com or scan the code below.

Sika Sarnafil.

Because performance is mandatory.

WHY CHOOSE SIKA SARNAFIL? Proven Performance Performance over time is the only true test of any waterproofing system. Sika Sarnafil has been providing waterproofing solutions for vegetative roofs, plazas, and other landscaped areas for over 40 years. With over 15 billion square feet of roofing and waterproofing membrane installed worldwide, Sika Sarnafil has developed a world class record for reliability and performance. The Sarnafil G476 and G476 Self Adhered membranes are specially engineered for subgrade environments, compounded to remain watertight in extreme conditions, including constant dampness, ponding water, high and low alkaline conditions, and exposure to plant roots, fungi and bacterial organisms. In addition, Sika Sarnafil has been recognized throughout the industry for its innovative recycling program that takes back vinyl membranes to be recycled into new membrane products at the end of their useful life.

Root Resistance Most roofing membranes and many waterproofing membranes are not resistant to root penetration and are prone to fail due to root infiltration into the field seams and flashings. Sarnafil membranes are inherently root and algae resistant and require no additional barriers to be added to the system. The membranes have been tested at FLL and meet the recently released American National Standards Institute (ANSI) VR-1 Procedure for Investigating Resistance to Root Penetration on Vegetative Roofs test procedure. Single Source Responsibility Sika Sarnafil has developed a national program with leading vegetative suppliers including Roofmeadow and LiveRoof that includes a true single-source warranty program for extensive green roof systems (less than 6" vegetated cover). The integration of Sika Sarnafil’s waterproofing expertise with the vegetated cover know-how simplifies the design and

project delivery process. Specifications, construction documents and trade coordination are no longer difficult tasks. A building owner can have lasting confidence that the vegetated roof cover with proper maintenance will perform as specified. Factory Mutual Approvals Sika Sarnafil has the most extensive list of green roof assemblies that meet FM requirements including ASTM E108 for spread of flame, internal combustion (calorimeter), and foot traffic. These approvals eliminate the timeconsuming process of seeking FM approval on a project-by-project basis and help building owners avoid higher insurance premiums for unaccepted green roof systems.

Welcome to CitiesAlive! It is unbelievably our 10th Annual Green Roof and Wall Conference and we are excited to hold it here in the beautiful City of Chicago, where it all started in 2003 with our co-host, The City of Chicago. If you are new to our conference you will find an abundance of passion, enthusiasm and knowledge for green roofs and walls on the part of the diverse participants who attend – designers, policy makers, installers, researchers and manufacturers, to name a few. If you’ve been with us before, you’ll note that we have endeavored to focus on the theme of ‘performance’ with tours, discussion sessions, and many presentations, that examine how projects have been performing over the past decade or longer. The Living Architecture Performance Tool is an ambitious program that seeks to map the measurable performance attributes of living architecture so that we can strengthen our research, design, installation, maintenance and development efforts in the decades to come. We welcome your feedback! Congratulations to the more than 525 Green Roof Professionals that have invested the time, effort and funds to embrace best practices and who continue to help develop and learn about leading edge practices. Knowledge is power, and through our Integrated Water Management for Buildings and Sites Education Series, we hope to transform design and manufacturing towards the goal of Net Zero Water. The third course in the water management series launches today. We hope you have a great time at the conference! Don’t hesitate to join in on the important discussions about the future of our industry that will take place. Also be sure to purchase copies of The Rise of Living Architecture Commemorative Edition© and have them signed on the trade show floor by many of the leaders who fill its pages. It is sure to quickly become a collector’s item. We appreciate your support and hope that you deeply enjoy the many networking events, tours and presentations that will fill the next three days here in Chicago. Sincerely yours,

Jeffrey L. Bruce, GRP, FASLA Chair, Green Roofs for Healthy Cities

Steven W. Peck, GRP, Honorary ASLA Founder and President, Green Roofs for Healthy Cities


Welcome to CitiesAlive!

Chicago is the nation’s leader in green roofs, and is a fitting host for this conference. Since the inaugural CitiesAlive conference, also held in Chicago, Chicago has constructed more green roofs than any other city, including a 20,000-square-foot green roof on City Hall. This commitment to urban sustainability and the valuable economic opportunity that comes with sustainable communities is fostered by awareness and education. On behalf of the City of Chicago, I welcome the visitors to the 10th CitiesAlive Green Roof and Wall Conference. I wish you a productive conference and an enjoyable time in Chicago.

Barbara Deutsch, ASLA, Executive Director, The Landscape Architecture Foundation

Brad Bass, Adjunct Professor, Centre for Environment, University of Toronto (invited)

Paul Kephart, President, Rana Creek

Terry Guen, FALSA, Design Associates - Project Landscape Architect

Berkshire has been involved in the environmental field for 24 years and has been using policy as a driving force behind the green roof movement in Chicago.

Deutsch was principal investigator for the award-winning EPA Grant titled “The Green Build-out Model: Quantifying the Stormwater Management Benefits of Trees and Green Roofs in Washington, DC”.

Bass has explored the potential of green infrastructure for energy conservation, reducing the urban heat island, increasing urban biodiversity, improving indoor air quality and biofiltration. More recently, he has looked at the contribution of green roofs to a community energy plan and desiging living walls for zero-nutrient food production.

Renowned designer, biologist, and expert in land-use planning, Paul is best known for his pioneering efforts in Living Architecture, an alternative approach to conventional development through sustainable design strategies.

Guen, FASLA has focused her twodecade career as landscape architect and urban designer on creating public spaces for people, and enhancing the quality of the urban outdoor environment. She has worked on a national level as lead landscape architect for the West Side Waterfront Master Plan.
