COURSE DECRIPTION

This course will go over the basics of vegetated roof construction and how the industry has documented successful installations over the last 25 years in the United States. We will teach the design requirements and standards unique to green roofs. The course will educate the participant on the benefits of the technology- including stormwater management and lowering roof temperatures. We will also provide project examples across the country that incorporate a variety of technologies such as biosolar, amenity decks, daylight harvesting, and agricultural production. 


LEARNING OBJECTIVES

    • Gain the basic understanding of vegetated (green) roof design and how to create a unique system that still meets a typical roof warranty.
    • Understand how green roofs perform and the maintenance requirements needed to keep them healthy. 
    • Improve one’s ability to convey the benefits of green roof technology and how to apply it to a client’s specific needs (including agricultural, biosolar, amenity decks, and managing stormwater on the roof).
    • Provide knowledge on how green roofs can be used in new construction, retrofit, and residential projects; and what LEED credits may be utilized.
