Completed in August, 2005, "Site constraints along with the complex functions of security and traffic movement through a port of entry led to this green roof solution. The vegetative roof of low maintenance sedums adds insulating value and blends the building with the site. Without a green roof, almost the entire site would be impervious surfaces requiring costly water retention and filtering solutions." (GSA website, see below.)
