|Completed in the summer of 2003, the podium level of the Boston World Trade Center roof was designed to resist 90 mph winds. It is covered with Roofrug?, a prevegetated mat carpet of sedums offered by Roofscapes, Inc. The 15,000 square foot area used the five inch deep non-irrigated Type III: Savannah Roofmeadow? assembly. The design is low-maintenance and wind resistant. |
