Tremco has been providing its customers sustainable
building solutions for decades. It is now applying its green
technologies, along with those of other RPM businesses, to its
own headquarters, located on the aptly named Green Road.
Originally built in 1970, it is undergoing a multi-million dollar
top-to-bottom renovation that will transform the structure into a
showcase of sustainability. The products and services provided
by the businesses involved include:
Outsulation insulated exterior wall cladding system by RPM sister company Dryvit Systems, Inc.; and
General contracting, utilizing sustainable construction best practices, by Tremco subsidiary WTI.
The objectives of the building renovation are to improve energy
efficiency, conserve water, reduce operational costs, provide a
healthier facility for employees, reduce the company’s carbon
footprint and recycle materials to minimize waste. The building
transformation is being chronicled with stories, photos and
videos at www.TremcoGreenHQ.com.
Other green initiatives on the Tremco office
campus include a windmill in the parking lot and
a cool/photovoltaic roof on an adjacent building.
