The Intersection of Sustainability, Energy and Maintenance of Roofs.
This seminar will provide solutions to roofing issues using Life Cycle based decisions, which evaluate and weigh the sustainability, energy reduction and ongoing maintenance impacts.  Even for the roofing novice, this Seminar will provide answers on how to approach similar decisions regarding buildings and their associated components and equipment serving them.  Building Owners, especially those with multiple facilities to maintain, and the design teams for those buildings should all attend this seminar.  Interesting (more so "quirky") case study examples will be woven throughout the presentation.
