Cooperative purchasing contracts used by a Texas school district allowed the district to access Houston’s Waterproofing and Sheet Metal Specialists for roofing projects. Through their purchasing cooperative contract, HWSMS used a Fluid-Applied, Sustainable Cool-Roof System (FASCRS) to reroof a junior high and high school. A few months later, when Hurricane Ike hit the area in September, the district reported that the two roofs survived without any leaks where the new system was applied by HWSMS through their cooperative purchasing contract, while nearby structures had water damage. Since then, the district has used the facilities purchasing cooperative contract through Choice Facility Partners for Houston’s Waterproofing and Sheet Metal to apply Hydro-Stop, the new roof system, to about 500,000 sq. ft. of school facility roofs.

In addition to the good track record of dry buildings and the speed of the process, the roof system applied using the cooperative purchasing contract, has resulted in a significant decrease in water and electricity use. Districts that have done a detailed energy study before and after FASCRS have demonstrated approximately 25% savings on air conditioning electrical consumption, according to Joe Ecrette, HWSMS vice president of sales and business development.
A good way to access this product and HWSMS is by using the cooperative purchasing contract with Choice Facility Partners. HWSMS has applied 3.5 million sq. ft. of Hydro-stop product with a number of clients who accessed their services through the Choice Facility Partners’ cooperative purchasing contract. According to Fred Schroeder, vice president and CEO, school districts appreciate the cooperative purchasing option and “like Choice [Facility Partners] – so we’re busy talking to 35 other school districts.”
Ecrette says another benefit that districts will have after accessing the HWSMS cooperative purchasing contract, is that “the FASCRS system offers approximately 45% savings versus removal and replacement of existing traditional system.”
