TexCote has applied its Coolwall patented energy-saving exterior coating to the new U.S. Citizenship & Immigration Services immigration buildings in South Florida. The application of the Coolwall system may save the federal government up to 21.9% in cooling costs and is a part of their $135 million modernization project.

"Our Coolwall system has a unique heat reflective technology that reflects the sun's infrared energy and UV radiation. This technology results in lower surface temperatures on the walls compared to paint in the same color. The Coolwall system's Fade Block technology also minimizes color fading, eliminating the need for frequent repainting," said Jay Haines, president and CEO, Textured Coatings of America, Inc. "We are glad the USCIS has recognized the benefits and energy savings this product can bring to buildings in Florida."

In an effort to improve their image and facilitate the processing of immigrants into the country, the USCIS started a massive modernization project involving 36 buildings across the nation. The project began with five new buildings in South Florida that were specifically designed to enhance the experience of new immigrants. The Coolwall application on the USCIS facilities, ranging in size from 38,000 to 60,000 square feet, was started eight months ago and will be completed in time for the new offices to open in November 2008.
