Known as the “Batman Building” for its resemblance to the superhero’s mask, the AT&T Tennessee Headquarters Building is a distinctive feature of the downtown skyline in Nashville, Tennessee, USA. At thirty-two stories, the skyscraper is the state’s tallest building, with multiple roof elevations and numerous irregularly shaped roof areas.
Most of the original roofs on the building were ballasted EDPM systems, which were leaking and showing signs of age. Specifications for roof replacement in 2008 called for the installation of thermoplastic membranes, making Sika Sarnafil’s EnergySmart Roof system an attractive option for the building owner. This system provides maximum watertight protection and reduces energy costs by reflecting the sun’s radiant energy. The EnergySmart Roof meets the cool roof requirements of EPA ENERGY STAR, California Title 24, LEED and Green Globes programs.
The newly-installed Sika Sarnafil roof is performing well. The “Batman Building” is once again safely protected and will not be sending out distress signals any time soon.
