WGBH is a public radio station based in Boston, and the building is LEED certified. It “has a Roofmeadow green roof surrounding its solar panel array. Roofmeadow was responsible for the engineering design, assembly selection, shop drawings, specifications and installation supervision of the green roof. The green roof will optimize the efficiency of the adjacent 100kW photovoltaic array by maintaining cooler air on the roof,” (Roofmeadow).
Installed in the spring of 2008, the green roof at WGBH is one of the first green roofs to combine solar and vegetative roof technologies. Both provide for a nice backdrop to the first Polshek Partnership building in Boston. The roof was established from cuttings and accomplished near complete coverage over the course of its first year of growth.
