Today's Facility Manager: Analysis Of Berkeley Labs Study Details Flawed Science


 “We strongly oppose any recommendation that irresponsibly promotes the use of one product over another based on faulty science. We question the validity of this study, since it is based on a sample size of only 22 roofs, and we are challenging the conclusions that the authors draw from the data,” said Ellen Thorp, Associate Executive Director of ERA.  “Due to the complexity of roof and building science, prescriptive requirements that limit design choices are not in the best interests of architects, design professionals, or building owners.”
