The sky-high project required sustainable materials and high levels of environmental responsibility. In choosing a material for the long, winding walkway, durability was a significant concern, as the walkway was designed to be applied just four inches from the concrete surface.
The designer chose our Benchmark Ash decking for the 23,000+ feet of winding walkway because of its stunning beauty, high durability and our commitment to responsibility. Thermory products provided LEED points toward certification because of their solar reflectivity index. Our Benchmark Ash products come with a 25+ year rot-resistance rating for Class 1 Durability. Thermory products are both low maintenance and beautiful, providing a naturally stunning aesthetic to complement the gorgeous surrounding features.
Hot Feet? No Way!The Solar Reflectivity Index not only provides LEED points, but helps make this deck safe and comfortable even for bare feet!
A Beautiful Landscape
The rooftop gardens showcase many wonderful elements and features. This walkway not only provides access to all of them—because of its beautiful design and material—it’s one of them in and of itself!
“We wanted to use a sustainable product that was long-lasting with minimal maintenance through the year. Our research said modified wood was the way to go.”
