Green roof systems are typically described in terms of soil depth (intensive vs. extensive) or where they are assembled (built-in-place vs. modular). These are useful categories, but do not address key elements of green roof design, such as drainage, water storage, roof slope and other considerations. This presentation will review different green roof systems and components, and their use in meeting project goals relating to storm water management, integration with hardscape and constructability.
- Explain the importance of optimized acoustics in a learning environment.
- Discuss acoustic ceiling solutions for various educational space.
- Identify the benefits of natural daylighting and how acoustic ceilings can contribute to sustainability.
