Virtual Nooniversity: A Case Study of A Great Midwest Green Roof- Enhancing Stormwater Management

12:00 PM
Zoom Virtual Meeting | Online Kansas City, MO 64108 Map

This will be a VIRTUAL program held on Zoom.  Log in information will be emailed to attendees two days before the program.

After 15 years of custom growing very special midwest green roofs, we will focus this presentation on one green roof that holds a deeply personal place in the hearts of staff at Roof Top Sedums and has been delighting occupants of the building since installation in 2010.

Attendees will be inspired by how this green roof came to be, the benefits realized, both intended and unintended, and lengths current occupants are going to raise funds to green more existing 'ugly' roofs on the building in the future.

Attendees will learn of new research regarding design options to enhance already impressive storm water management capabilities of green roofs.  We will use the 'future green roof" desired by the case study roof to look at how much water could be managed with different green roof enhancements based on the newly released research to be discussed.

Enhancing the storm water management abilities of a green roof will not only help heal patients but could also heal our urban environment.

This program is worth 1 HSW.  You must attend the full session in order to get AIA credit.  If you leave the Zoom meeting early, no credit will be reported.
