Green Roof Open House - May 17th, 2007
Green roofs or living roofs provide a natural solution to current urban environmental problems. Our two main research areas include using green roofs to increase thermal efficiency and manage storm water of a building.
Subject: A general over view about green roof applications will be presented in a 30 minute presentation which includes an introduction to the historical and global case studies, types, benefits, and barriers of the implementation of green roofs. As well as a quick glance at CAGRTís first year research results. The second half of the presentation will demonstrate the implementation, define the materials and construction, substrate and plants/planting technology, and some design guidelines used to build the research facilityís green roof. After the presentation there will be a mini tour of the research facility.
Where: BCIT Green Roof Research Facility, 555 Great Northern Way, Vancouver, BC
Time: 3-5 pm
