GO FROM SILVER TO GOLD WITH COOL PAVEMENT COATINGS
Many Engineering firms are now specifying Emerald Cities Cool Pavement Coatings to leap from Silver to Gold or Gold to Platinum Certification on rennovation projects. The shift from non reflective asphalt parking lot to .4 solar reflectance of a parking lot is a simple way to make this leap in LEED points with very little effort. it also provides added savings by 30% reduction in night time illumination and also increases parking lot safety.
