|Tim Johnson, State Farm administrative services supervisor told the Charlottesville Daily Progress on July 6, 2008 (see below) ?We were having the roof replaced and some of us started talking about green roofs and it just so happened that the contractor was involved in making green roofs. It seemed like something we should try. We?re one of the first offices in the company to have a green roof and we?re taking pictures of it and seeing it how it works so we can report back on how it fares.? |
