Our own 100,000 square foot headquarters in Schaumburg, Illinois has earned LEED Certification for Existing Buildings from the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC), in part because of the energy efficiency and environmental quality benefits of the LiveRoof (vegetative garden roof and solar roof technologies) installed as part of our Roofing Design Center. Rabine’s Roofing Design Center is comprised of 15 roof types, and a walking path that allows clients to examine each option, including:
- Solar roofs & solar panels
- Vegetative roof & garden
- Built-up roof (BUR) with gravel
- Cool roof coatings
