Project of the Month

Name: City of Minneapolis
Location: Minneapolis, MN
Product: Sarnafil® G476 waterproofing membrane and adhered EnergySmart Roof® using 60 mil Sarnafil® G410 membrane in white

Facing an epic sewer overflow problem, the city of Minneapolis turned to Sika Sarnafil and an expert team of consultants and contractors to replace the Target Center’s EDPM roof with a green roof capable of preventing runoff.

The team set to work on creating a 2.5-acre vegetated roof — the largest in Minnesota, complete with 29 different areas — in the middle of a bustling downtown. Today, the roof not only prevents storm water runoff, it reduces energy costs and provides an urban sanctuary for the endangered Karner Blue Butterfly.
