Building the Rooftop Farm: Advice from a Structural Engineer

Event Navigation

From our organizers:

Back for Round 2 of this popular class! This time around we’ll leave 30 minutes specifically for networking.

This class will provide the audience with a basic understanding of common NYC building structures, and the tools and knowledge to make a rooftop farm or general green space possible on a variety of budgets. Combining realistic expectations with a coactive and open-minded team of design professionals is the bridge between dreams and reality – to turn grey into green.

We will cover:

Successful rooftop green space – a range of examples
Possibilities for your building – what’s legal
The Department of Buildings and your Certificate of Occupancy
Understanding common building structures and loads
The anatomy of a successful design team
How to select and work with your structural engineer
Tools to maximize your greenspace from layout optimization to load reduction
Step by step project case study
Project costs
