Green Roof Design
Green roofs technology is quickly becoming a fundamental element of the emerging practice of living architecture, however they are much more than just an architectural or ideological construct. Our understanding of green roof design as an energy and water management system has grown immensily during the past decade and it is the combination of these feature of green roofswhich make them very attractive sustainable building solutions.
As every building is unique, at Green Rooms careful consideration is given to both of these aspects to find the optimal balance for a particular green roof design. A one-size fits all approach for a green roof can result in an under-engineered or overly-complicated system that is ill-equipped for sustained performance in the long run. During the design phase, drawings and documents prepared by Green Rooms address all issues involving plant and media selection, water management (including water conservation), system weight loading and maintenance requirements in an effort to tailor the vegetated roof or wall to climactic constraints and the client's needs.
