COOLWALL® Project Named Journal Of Architectural Coatings' Top Green Pick of 2009

Updated: Dec 28, 2022

The May 2009 issue of the Journal of Architectural Coatings publication features the Burke, Hogue & Mills Associates, Inc. building as the Top Green Pick of 2009. TEX•COTE®’s COOLWALL® System was one of the green attributes of this project winning it this designation.

At first glance, it may appear that it's fairly easy to be green -- or at least fairly straightforward. Evidence supporting a verdict of "green" might take the form of a LEED certification for a building project or third-party documentation that a product contributes to indoor air quality to emitting no VOCs or other harmful substances.
But a look at the following entries in JAC's Top Green Coatings Projects shows that it can be a bit more complicated than that.
Yes, "LEED" or "low-emitting paint" is clearly stamped on the green-building package label of many of the projects described in this special "Top Green Projects" report.
But the overall range and scope of the projects featured here reflect an important aspect of the green- and sustainable-design universe -- that the definition of this much-debated term "green" can and must take into account the multifaceted nature of designs, construction, and materials content and specification.
