With the increasing use of the United States Green Building Council’s
LEED as a procurement standard by many governments, and the introduction
of new LEED rating systems for retrofit buildings, green roof infrastructure
promises to play an ever-increasing role in achieving LEED credits for
high performance buildings—delivering benefits at the development
site, in building operation, and in the broader community.
In this intensive introductory course, you will learn how to determine
the major functions and components of a green roof, identify the factors
which influence costs, learn how to utilize an integrated design process
in your project for maximum benefit, and much more.
