GPW: Breaking Ground Contracting Green Roof & Rooftop Garden

GPW: Breaking Ground Contracting Green Roof & Rooftop Garden

Breaking Ground’s green roof is comprised of three main component ecosystems, including native wildflowers, shrubs, small trees and an intense permaculture food and herb garden. In addition to the green roof, this project also incorporates a 10kW photovoltaic (electric) solar system, a solar thermal (hot water) system, living walls, a rain garden, low and no VOC interior paints and finishes, extensive reuse of materials from the demolition of the original building, high efficiency HVAC system with individual occupant controls, outside views for all occupants, and much more. The system is irrigated with condensate from the HVAC units and is designed using hurricane simulator tested components.
