Roodvoets, David L.
College Planning & Management, v6 n8 pR2-R6, passim Aug 2003
Examines the benefits of protected membrane roofing (PMR) for school buildings. PMR uses an upside-down approach, where the insulation is placed on top of the waterproofing membrane to improve membrane effectiveness, reduce ultraviolet degradation, and improve insulation efficiency. The article explains what makes PMR sustainable, focusing on life-cycle costing and reducing, recycling, and reusing of materials. (SM)
