PressRelease: @RecoverRoofs celebrates 7thanniversary with new website & first-of-its-kind project in NE #greenroofs
“We hope the new website reflects the care and craftsmanship we put into all our projects and that it represents the great people we’ve worked with over the past seven years,” said Mark Winterer, co-owner and director of operations. The website highlights a full portfolio of commercial, residential, and institutional projects including a new, first-of-its-kind Omni Ecosystems roof atop the McArthur/McCollum Building at Harvard Business School. Omni’s comprehensive growing media is an innovative, ultra-lightweight soil blend that functions in a similar way to a natural meadow ecosystem and can support a wider array of plants than typical extensive green roofs. The roof sprouted from seed within three days and developed into a lush meadow of pollinator-friendly flowering buckwheat, calendula, aster, milkweed, clover, and ripe radishes within several weeks.
