Columbia Green Technologies (Columbia Green) has formed a strategic partnership with Carlisle Coatings and Waterproofing (CCW) to offer a single source solution for waterproofing, insulation and vegetative roofing.

Sustainable building envelope design presents unique challenges for architects and engineers because of competing systems functions. A single source for the building envelope system ensures seamless functionality for waterproofing both below and above grade, insulation for optimal energy efficiency, and stormwater management with a green roof.

CCW provides the waterproofing membrane used in the solution. For more that 45 years, CCW's solutions have lead the way in providing watertight, reliable waterproofing solutions to suit varied site solutions. Offering time-tested systems and innovative solutions that incorporate the latest waterproofing technologies.

Leveraging the strategic partnership between CCW and Dow Building Solutions, a business unit of The Dow Chemical Company (NYSE: DOW), the solution exclusively uses STYROFOAM™ Brand Insulation manufactured by Dow Building Solutions, an integral component in the system for its excellent insulating and moisture resistance properties.

“CCW is pleased to partner with Columbia Green, bringing their outstanding reputation for quality and providing premium solutions for customers,” said Keith Rivers, CCW National Accounts Manager. “These systems are time-tested, so customers can feel confident in the integrity of their waterproofing, insulation and green roof systems.”

Columbia Green Technologies is a manufacturer of Carlisle’s garden roof system. Garden roofs, also known as green roofs or vegetative roofs, are used for on-site stormwater management, reduction of the urban heat island effect and other environmental benefits.

“We are excited to partner with Carlisle Coatings and Waterproofing. Columbia Green offers innovative green roof systems engineered for stormwater management and optimal plant health. Our waterproofing partnership allows CCW to offer a single source warranty that inspires confidence in the implementation of our system,” says Vanessa Keitges, President and CEO of Columbia Green Technologies.

This partnership allows designers to identify a single source for the entire building envelop including the green roof, ensuring long term system integrity for building owners and developers. System solutions are of increasing importance in the implementation of green building practices and Columbia Green expects to see widespread adoption of green roofs with a single source warranty.
