FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Insulating Coatings Corporation Awarded GSA Contract for Roofing Materials.
Schedule Contract # GS-07F-026AA will allow ICC the ISO 9001-2008 manufacturer of ASTEC to provide the Astec Re-Ply Roofing Systems to local, state and federal government agencies through a streamlined and expedited procurement process.
BINGHAMTON, NY (October 12, 2012) - ICC a world leader in seamless roofing and exterior coating technology, today announced that it has been awarded U.S. General Services Administration (GSA) contract (Schedule 56 : BUILDING MATERIALS) for “Roofing Materials” under Special Identification Number (SIN) 563 4.
Effective October 12, ICC’s new five-year GSA contract (GS-07F-026AA) provides local, state and federal governments with expedited access to the Astec Re-Ply products and services, including installation and site preparation, related to and ordered in conjunction with products for repair or replacement of an existing roof.
ICC has been indirectly providing roofing solutions to the government since 1984 and with their recently secured GSA Contract; they look forward to working directly with federal agencies and departments to reduce capital expenditures and energy costs while extending the facility life cycle values of government property.
GSA oversees $66 billion of procurement annually and contributes to the management of about $500 billion in U.S. federal property, divided chiefly among 8,300 owned and leased buildings. The Astec Re-Ply Roofing Systems qualify for LEED credits, and GSA has earned a LEED rating for a number of their buildings.
The American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 made available not less than $4.5 billion for measures necessary to convert GSA facilities to High-Performance Green Buildings, as defined in the Energy Independence and Security Act of 2007 (Public Law 110-140).
ICC was able to help US Army facilities in the Middle East reduce energy consumption by 26%.
Government budgets are being reduced, but goals and requirements are being increased. Astec can qualify for either MRO or New Construction and can help utilize a facility’s budget to its fullest capabilities.
Here is what others have said about Astec:
“We can extend the life of existing roofing for a fraction of the cost of conventional roof replacement.” - Benjamin S., Col, EN Director, Dept. of the Army
“The two biggest benefits to us are the prevention of water intrusion and the reflection of the sun so we can reduce our energy costs."
- Jack F., Vice Admiral (Retired), Naval Aviation Museum
The Naval Air Museum saved more than $300,000 over roof replacement.
The Astec Re-Ply Systems:
* Are an Energy Star Partner.
* Qualify for LEED Credits and meet ASHRAE 90.1 and 189.1-2009.
* Are ISO 9001-2008 Manufactured.
Astec has over 25 years’ experience and hundreds of millions of sq. ft. of field tested roofing projects around the world.
ICC develops and manufactures fluid-applied membrane systems for the sustainable restoration of roofs, walls, and other industrial surfaces. ASTEC elastomeric products and systems not only provide seamless water-proof and weather-tight barriers; they offer high reflectivity, emissivity, and dissipation of heat, while reducing UV light degradation.
ASTEC coatings and membranes add advantages to any substrate that can lead to substantial maintenance and energy cost reductions. All ASTEC systems qualify for Energy Star and Cool Roof programs. In addition, many ASTEC monolithic ceramic wall and roofing systems test well beyond typical standards for durability, pliability, longevity, wind resistance, abrasion resistance, and salt, chemical, and corrosives resistance, while reducing thermal shock damage and the high cost of temperature control.
