Challenge

As a 9-1-1 emergency call hub, the Alachua County Combined Communications facility services 227,000+ residents locally, as well as the population of the University of Florida. With staff in the building 24 hours a day, 7 days a week responding to urgent and critical situations, safety and reliability were obvious concerns. However, serving the community didn’t stop there, as project stakeholders also wanted a roofing solution that would help them meet their environmental goals for years to come.

Solution

  • A two-ply Siplast SBS-modified bitumen Paradiene 20/30 Eco-Activ® System was chosen to meet the high-performance needs of this critical facility
  • Immediate environmentally conscious goals were met with Eco-Activ’s depolluting Noxite® granules, which will actively work to clear Gainesville’s air of harmful nitrous oxides
  • Long-term, environmentally conscious goals were also met with the use of Siplast’s reroofable NVS Lightweight Insulating Concrete roof insulation
