Sika wins “Rooftop Excellence in Design” Awards

The Excellence in Design Award was established in 2003 to recognize the best in design and installation of long-lasting, energy efficiency, environmentally friendly roof systems. With the development of RoofPoint in 2011, the Center for Environmental Innovation in Roofing began recognizing design excellence through the RoofPoint program. Annual design award winners are selected from projects that best exemplify the mission and meet the criteria of RoofPoint.

What is RoofPoint?

RoofPoint is a voluntary, consensus-based green rating system developed by the Center for Environmental Innovation in Roofing to provide a means for building owners and designers to select nonresidential roof systems based on long-term energy and environmental benefits. RoofPoint provides a simple, transparent and professional measure to validate that new and replacement roof systems are designed, installed and maintained in accordance with the most current sustainable best practices.

Economic value and protecting environment

The RoofPoint functions include a checklist to identify the many ways current roofing systems provide economic value and protect the environment as well as a guideline to establish design, installation and maintenance criteria for the selection of sustainable roof systems. Furthermore, there is an assessment system in place to compare different sustainable roofing strategies and select the optimal roof systems for any building and site condition and a recognition program to validate roof system selection and reward environmental innovation in roofing.

Participation in green rating systems

Sika’s commitment to the environment is evidenced by the numerous projects realized all around the world. Sika actively participates in various green rating systems. In 2013, three Sika roofing projects using Sarnafil roofing systems won the USA Rooftop Excellence in Design Award, which is recognized through the RoofPoint system. See winners in the margin.
