Case Studies

Roof Spec, Inc.

The Lebanon Hills Visitor Center serves as a Minnesota model for sustainability. The Visitor Center showcases several green building features such as a vegetative roof, rain garden, and day lighting.

Roof Spec, Inc. (RSI) assisted the owner and architect in the design for the green roof at the Visitor Center & Trailhead at Lebanon Hills Regional Park, Dakota County, MN.

The Lebanon Hills Visitor Center’s main building covers 6,030 square feet. Completed in July 2003, construction costs were approximately $1.4 million. The building was designed and constructed to provide operation with minimal impact to the environment. The most innovative feature of the building is a green roof with sedum plantings, planted in May 2005. ~ Roof Spec

RSI also provided consulting and construction observation services for the installation of a Carlisle SynTec hot-applied CCW-500 waterproofing roof membrane.
