 2005 Annual Meeting & EXPO > Green Roofs for Healthy Cities Design 101


Friday, October 7
8:00 am—5:00 pm

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.

The fee for this workshop includes:

  • Participant’s manual and course completion certificate;
  • Complimentary morning coffee break, box lunch, and afternoon refreshment break;
  • Complimentary one year Green Roofs for Healthy Cities (GRHC) individual membership in 2005 that includes:
    • 50 percent discount on purchase of Conference CDs which contain over 50 technical papers on policy, design, and research ($50 U.S. value);
    • Member registration fee ($100 U.S. discount off regular registration fee) for GRHC’s Annual Conference, Awards, and Trade Show;
    • Two-line description in the searchable online membership database including contact information and member profile of participation in previous conferences, workshops, and training courses;
    • Membership listing in GRHC’s Members Directory in their Conference CD-ROM;
    • Bi-monthly electronic newsletter on green roof developments;
    • One semi-annual hard copy or electronic version of the Green Roof Infrastructure Monitor.

Steven Peck, Executive Director, Green Roofs for Healthy Cities.
