The Hutchinson Design Group received the RoofPoint Excellence in Design award for projects that include two District 65 roofing projects.  Hutchinson Design Group, Ltd., of Barrington, Illinois is the roofing architectural firm responsible for roof work at Haven Middle School and Lincolnwood Elementary School.  The award recognizes projects for their long-term energy and environmental benefits.

According to the March/April 2013 issues of Carolinas Roofing, the reroofing project features asphalt shingles, glazed tile restoration, and a long-term weathering surface.  Three percent of the roofing membrane contains recycled content and have a high number of products described as low-volatile organic compounds (VOCs).  This means that the products are more environmentally friendly.

 RoofPoint is a voluntary, consensus-based green rating system developed by the Center for Environmental Innovation in Roofing to provide a means for building owners and designers to select nonresidential roof systems based on long-term energy and environmental benefits.
