|As part of an effort to avoid increasing pervious area while developing a surgical addition, Shore Medical Center included a green roof to help manage stormwater on site. The green roof serves as a therapeutic garden and is visible through the hospital windows. A floor to ceiling glass curtain wall along the face of the building, allows for expansive views of the garden from inside the hospital. The garden is accessible to patients and hospital staff interested in leaving the confines of the hospital.|
|The green roof area is installed over a concrete on metal deck and includes 8" of media. Perennials, grasses, trees, benches, walkways and six pre-cast concrete planters make the space inviting to hospital patients and staff.|
