Flynn Canada Wins Excellence of Commercial Landscape Construction/Installation Award
Niagara Falls, ON Canada - (March 12, 2013) - The Canadian Nursery Landscape Association announced their National Awards of Landscape Excellence winners. We are very excited that Flynn Canada has won the Caterpillar Award of Excellence for Commercial Landscape Construction/Installation.
Flynn received this honor based on their work on the Toronto City Hall Green Roof Project. Toronto’s largest accessible green roof is situated on the podium deck of Toronto’s iconic and revitalized New City Hall. Approximately 36,000 sq.ft. of green roof composed of interlocking and gravel pathways with concrete and wooden benches surrounds the twin towers, bringing the entire project to 150,000 sq.ft. It is also made up of 6” x 4” LiveRoof modules and is composed of grasses, sedums and perennials in a kaleidoscope of colours.
The Toronto City Hall green roof occupies a public space and creates a park for visitors to stroll and rest when visiting Nathan Phillips Square. Flynn Canada is proud to be recognized for this achievement as this is the first time that a green roof has ever won this award.
