This Apex Green Roofs course discusses green roof systems, a growing application in both commercial and residential construction projects within the U.S. Implementation of green roofs in the U.S. has been influenced by German environmental policy that brought about a mixture of federal and local laws, backed by supportive subsidies and punitive higher taxes on run-off from conventional roofs. German legislation has driven implementation of green roofs since the 1950s. And local legislation in the U.S. is what is driving increased implementation of green roofs in this country.
- Which types of green roof incentive policies are active in the United States.
- How green roofs save money compared to a traditional roof.
- How to align critical design considerations with green roof project goals.
- Learn key points to consider for green roof planning success.
- Where green roof technology originated from and its proven green roof benefits.
- Design considerations, project goals, waterproofing considerations, and components.
- Green roof design ideas and options.
- Lessons learned and how to avoid costly mistakes when installing a green roof in a commercial setting.
