About This Course:
The popularity of energy-efficient roofs or Green Roofs, also known as living roofs, is increasing as their value is becoming more appreciated. The intention of the Green Roof concept is to take otherwise heat-producing areas, such as rooftops and plazas, and provide a cooler environment. The result is a cooler roof decreasing the building’s energy consumption and reducing the heat island effect. The Green Roof concept has seen widespread acceptance within the construction community. The tray modular green roof is an engineered system used in conjunction with our adjustable pedestals on top of roof decks, plaza decks and terraces, and can integrate seamlessly with elevated pavers and wood deck tiles, resulting in a stunning and versatile green rooftop deck. In this program, attendees will be provided an overview of the anatomy of the tray modular green roof system, and will better understand the logics behind the design, construction and cost implications of such system.
Learning Objective 1
Attendees will be offered an overview of the tray modular green roof system. Its anatomy and elements will be examined.
Learning Objective 2
Attendees will be offered an overview of the logics behind the design and construction of the tray modular green roof system.
Learning Objective 3
A sample estimate will be discussed for attendees’ better understanding of the cost implications of installing the tray modular green roof system.
Learning Objective 4
The potential benefits of the tray modular green roofs will be discussed.
