Sustainability and LEED Credits for Roofing, Waterproofing, and Garden Roof Assemblies
Construction is no longer just about building and development, it's about being smart.
That entails limiting the impact of the construction process on the very environment that nurtures us. This means building for the long term and catering to global needs and issues.
Hydrotech has developed products, systems and alliances that reflect our commitment to environmental sustainability. Along with producing one of the industry’s best performing membranes, Hydrotech has also introduced some of the industry's most sustainable waterproofing assemblies. For instance, our MM6125® is a hot-applied rubberized asphalt that can be formulated with a minimum 40% post consumer recycled content.
Monolithic Membrane 6125, the foundation for all our assemblies, helps generate LEED® points on projects around the country each and every day. Hydrotech assemblies feature recycled content in the membrane and reduced lifecycle costs due to project longevity (which also reduces its impact on landfills). In addition, the Ultimate Assembly® delivers energy savings through reflective pavers, while our Garden Roof® Assembly delivers storm water management capabilities.
In short, Hydrotech has the solutions that fit long-term sustainability strategies building owners and operators are demanding of the products and assemblies they specify.
