Next monday (February the 15th) join as at 6 PM for a Green Roofs Costs and Benefits webinar! This is a great opportunity to learn more about green roofs and their importance in green building. Note that webinars are pre-recorded and must be attended in person to receive credit.
About This Event:
A Green Roof installation is a strategy that can contribute up to 20% of the total credits needed to attain LEED certification. Furthermore, a Green Roof can be on a partial portion of the roof and need not fully cover the available roof area. This course will provide you with thermal properties information and quantify the potential energy savings so that a cost/benefit analysis can be made. Rainwater quality and quantity measurements are provided as well. Course participants will gain valuable knowledge on the component parts of green roofs, and savings potential gained from installing a green roof.
The information provided will be useful to many of our members: contractors, investors, property owners, developers, businesses, commercial organizations, and all other LEED professionals.
