The award-winning Surry Hills Library has officially been crowned a world-leading community facility after winning a prestigious Best New Global Design Award 2011.
Not only has the building set a new benchmark in environmental design and performance, it has also been designed to dramatically reduce energy use.
Wolfin GWSK Waterproofing Membrane has been installed on the green roof, which cools the building in summer and insulates it in winter. It also acts as the primary collection point for the 60,000 litre rainwater storage tank. The rainwater tank is also lined with Wolfin GWSK Waterproofing Membrane. The Wolfin system was chosen because it’s one of the few green roof membranes with FLL testing against root penetration.
