Introduction to Green Roofs

Event Navigation

From our organizers:

According to global design firm SOM, “there are an estimated 37 square miles of roof atop New York City…with only a tiny fraction designed for active use.” But combining common practices with emerging technologies, we now have the tools to change this and help solve key challenges concerning food, water, energy, and biodiversity that negatively impact our cities today.

In our 3rd rendition of this class, we will examine a range of topics as they pertain to Green Roofs, including:

Overview & History
System Types
Elements & Technology
Design Considerations
Benefits
Installation
Incentives
Solar Integration
About the instructor: Alan Burchell is the founder of Urbanstrong, a full-service green building technology firm that designs, builds, and maintains a range of green infrastructure solutions.

*This presentation is also eligible for a 1-hour continuing education credit with AIA CES, LA CES, and GBCI CES.
