On October 11, 2012 Sika Sarnafil launched its social media platforms through the Sika Sarnafil Virtual Scavenger Hunt.  In  honor of the new social media campaign, we want to let you know that in addition to accessing up-to-date content (e.g., maintenance tips, how-to advice, sustainability information and other educational insights),   all U.S. contractors, architects, engineers, and other commercial roofing industry professionals can enter the Sika Sarnafil Virtual Scavenger Hunt contest on Facebook for a chance to win dozens of prizes including 12 Amazon Kindles.

Sika Sarnafil’s Virtual Scavenger Hunt will be held over four weeks with four scavenger hunts from October 30th to November 25th, each open for one week from Tuesday, 1:00 pm ET to Sunday at 11:59 pm ET.  It is intended to test a player’s roofing IQ while providing valuable roofing information and tools.  Playing is simple.  Each player will receive a roofing clue leading to the “treasure.”  Players find the “treasure” as fast as they can to win.  In each hunt, the first three eligible players to submit their “treasure” successfully will be awarded an Amazon Kindle.  The next twelve players each week to submit their “treasure” successfully will receive a $15.00 Amazon gift card.  To sign up, please visit here today.

There is no purchase necessary to play or to win.  Winners of each hunt will be notified by email and announced on the Sika Sarnafil Facebook page every Monday.

–   “In the News“

–   Benjamin Gottlieb, of CNN International, reports on “Crops out of concrete: Farming Hong Kong’s urban island.” Six months ago, local entrepreneur Osbert Lam started the Eco-Mama rooftop farm; and says “there are a lot of empty, leftover rooftops that could easily be transformed into fields.” Gottlieb says the Eco-Mama farm is one of an estimated 300 urban farming projects in Hong Kong and urban farmers find the activity personally rewarding. But Hong Kong lacks strong support from the government and agriculture only provides less than one tenth of 1% of Hong Kong’s GDP. But even with the challenges facing urban farming there, people like Lam remain optimistic and believe a community of rooftop farmers can prosper in Hong Kong.

– Belinda Lanks, of Co.Design, talks about “JDS Architects Builds A Rolling Rooftop Playground And Park.” Lanks says, “The Copenhagen firm takes the green roof a step further, creating a delightful outdoor playground for both kids and adults.” Copenhagen’s multiethnic district of Nørrebro is densely populated and JDS Architects’ idea was to create a “missing garden” above some of their own designed penthouse apartments for the residents and neighbors to enjoy. The nearly 10,000-square-foot roof includes a grassy hill with curved steps, a wooden deck, a shock-absorbent playground and a suspension bridge, all safely fenced in.
