The Alachua County Combined Communications Center houses 911 service technology for the city of Gainesville and the surrounding area, representing over 227,000 residents plus the population of the University of Florida.
When it was time to replace the building’s old roof, the County’s primary concern was reliability. But in addition, they approached the project from an environmentally conscious perspective, and wanted a system that would be sustainable and green.
To meet the high performance needs of this critical facility, the two-ply Icopal Siplast SBS modified bitumen Paradiene 20/30 Eco-Activ® System was chosen.
Noxite® from Icopal is part of its Eco-Activ® range of building protection systems, and is manufactured with a granular titanium dioxide finish which works actively with the surrounding environment to transform harmful nitrogen oxides into harmless nitrates.
Environmental goals for the project were met through Icopal’s Eco-Activ® depolluting Noxite® granules, which will actually help to clear Gainesville’s air. In addition, the Siplast NVS Lightweight Insulating Concrete roof insulation installed on the project can be reroofed indefinitely, making it a truly sustainable solution.
