Mayor Robert Donchez, Senator Lisa Boscola and other dignitaries gather Wednesday, Nov. 29, 2017 for the dedication of a 626-spot garage in south Bethlehem. The garage at New and Third streets has been billed as jumpstarting redevelopment in that section of the South Side Business District. The $17.4 million is connected to a six-story office building under construction next to it. That office building will be home to offices for St. Luke’s University Health Network and Lehigh University. There will also be first-floor commercial space. Motorists can sign up for monthly parking passes for the garage. It costs $65 a spot. The parking authority leases 180 spots to the developer for his tenants.
Centuries old, the roof garden concept has been most recently embraced in the United States. Both functional and aesthetically-appealing, this technology improves the structure's energy efficiency while adding plant life in populated areas.
Currently, the focus on improving the quality of life in urban environments has made these issues more pertinent than ever. Roof Gardens meet the objectives of many of the mandates to improve the air quality of cities by mitigating the effects of heat islands caused by ever increasing development. The benefits of the modern Roof Garden have been demonstrated by the US Green Building Council's endorsement of these systems through the LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) certification program.
Carlisle's Roof Garden System provides a variety of waterproofing options with a full line of accessories to insure a high performance system. This includes a range of membranes such as the 60-mil EPDM and TPO which are ideal for the Ultra Extensive Roof Gardens (shallow) with standard 15-20 year warranties. Roof gardens 4" to 8" in depth are classified as a Medium Assembly (Extensive) requiring 75-mil EPDM or 72-mil TPO membranes for 10-15 year warranties, and 90-mil EPDM or 80-mil TPO membranes for 20 year warranties. For the Intensive Roof Gardens (deep), the membrane options include Carlisle's toughest membranes -- 90-mil EPDM, 80-mil TPO and the 115 through 145-mil FleeceBACK¨ membranes. Carlisle also offers an option to mop down the AFX FleeceBACK EPDM membranes over two plies of base felts to provide a durable hybrid system. GO>Back<
