WHAT IS A GREEN ROOF?
Green roofs come in two forms. ‘Extensive’ green roofs house soil and plants which act as the stabilizer in the roofing system, providing a host of environmental benefits over the usual gravel as well as cost savings and health benefits. ‘Intensive’ green roofs are accessible by residents- the soil and plants are part of a rooftop outdoor social space providing environmental benefits, cost savings, health benefits and a park where there once was just a roof. The Co-op has both types, along with innovative energy and water saving systems.
