Green Roofs for Healthy Cities (GRHC) Launches Inaugural Testing and Accreditation Program at 7th Annual International Greening Rooftops for Sustaining Communities Conference

Hydrotech has been in the waterproofing and roofing industry for decades

American Hydrotech, a recognized leader in the development and distribution of premium waterproofing and roofing products, today announced that three of the company's associates have been accredited as Green Roof Professionals (GRP) by Green Roofs for Health Cities (GRHC), the North American Green Roof Industry Association. Nathan Griswold, Charles Loughrey and Trey Whitley all completed the necessary requirements and inaugural exam on June 5, 2009 during the 7th Annual International Greening Rooftops for Sustainable Communities Conference, hosted by GHRC in Atlanta, GA.

The GRP accreditation exam covers key areas of knowledge, encompassing five areas of concentration including pre-design, design, contract management, quality assurance and support and maintenance. Hydrotech's three associates were among 127 other conference delegates to complete the exam and receive the first-ever GRP accreditation by GRHC. GRP accreditation will verify that the designated GRP has attained a level of the interdisciplinary knowledge needed in the design, installation and maintenance of green roof systems.    

"Hydrotech has been in the waterproofing and roofing industry for decades," stated Edward Jarger, American Hydrotech's general sales and marketing manager. Our company has pioneered the green roofing market in the U.S., with first single source warranty (from the deck up) Garden Roof® Assembly installed more than 12 years ago. Since that time, Hydrotech's expertise has grown to more than 1,200 projects and 5,500,000 square feet of green roofs installed throughout North America. The accreditation of three of our associates as Green Roof Professionals by the newly developed GRHC standards is a testament to American Hydrotech's depth of industry knowledge and overall commitment to the industry and our customers."
