The course starts by assessing the need for vegetated roofs. The key benefits of vegetated green roofs are examined with a cross reference to LEED categories. These benefits are further examined by briefly reviewing tools that are available to evaluate life cycle savings. Topics covered include: green roof components, their assembly and construction, structural analysis, performance standards, vegetation free zones, irrigation needs, water capture & reuse, and retrofit projects.
Green Roof Technology, Green Roof Expert Extraordinaire for 40 years
Unlike others, Jörg Breuning is one of the few people on earth who actively shaped the beginning of the modern green roof industry in Europe/Germany more than 4 decades ago. In addition, he introduced green roofs to North America in 1999. Thus, he has over 40 years of experience in two fundamentally different markets for green roofs and green walls.
Today, Jörg Breuning’s skills in biophilic design and sustainable engineering go beyond green roofs and include specialties with living plants like Green Walls, Green Rail Road Tracks, natural swimming pools, advanced composting technology, PV / Solar combinations with vegetation, plastic-free green roofs, and solutions for the circular economy through urban mining – the highest level of sustainability and resilience.
Jörg: " There are an increasing number of masterminds for sustainable design, influencers for environmentally friendly solutions, and initiators for Cradle 2 Cradle principles. There are only a few that can convert these innovations into reality on a small or large scale. I leave the trendy, fancy buzz words to others and aid on realization."
