Part 2 – Green Roofs: Material Selection & Design Goals 

In this journey, the series navigates through the complete green roof process; from recognizing opportunities, to planning, material selection, system design, specifications and drawings, construction and maintenance.

In Part 2, participants get an overview on the North American green roof market. We explore individual components, learn about their functions and selection criterion, and how to put them together into engineered systems to achieve specific design goals. An emphasize is placed on the strongest driver behind the current green roof growth in North America, stormwater management.

Learning Objectives

At the end of this webinar, participants will be able to:

1. Distinguish the various types of green roofs, their market share and cost positions.
2. Define typical components and their assembly placement based on functional criteria.
3. Select proper components to create green roof systems to achieve various design intents.
4. Incorporate retention and detention elements to elevate stormwater management capacity.
