North Hall Green Roof Design

The summer 2012 Green Infrastructure Design+Build Studio worked to develop conceptual green roof plans and systems. Under the guidance of Professors Gita Nandon and Elliott Matby, each student developed their own insightful, creative design after learning the fundamentals of green roof systems.

The North Hall green roof will be built by Highview Creations. Highview is a GRP certified green roof design, build, and consultation company based in New York City. The company has designed and installed several extensive, intensive, and agricultural green-roofs throughout the Northeast. The company has worked with DEP on a green-roof/blue roof analysis as part of a DEC funded stormwater pilot study within the Jamaica Bay Watershed. Highview Creations is also a previous DEP Green Infrastructure Program award winner, and is familiar with the program agenda.

Green roof temperature and soil moisture will be collected continuously and in real time. Soil moisture data will trigger the solar powered irrigation system.
