Since we have finished schematic reviews, it’s time to get down
to nuts and bolts, almost. We have to carve everything down to one cohesive design, using the feedback from CPC and the City representatives, and one hinge point is really apparent.
The decision overshadowing the whole conversation – are we using a green roof? We have no previous experience using living shade, and it comes with bigger weights and price tags. On the flip side it’s pretty dang cool to look, retains water and is progressive in a few design areas.
We are being encouraged by the city to design a green roof, it aligns with there initiatives, and they have a precedent already built and under jurisdiction.
We have reached out to the recommended local business, seeking practical details about the roof. Be on the lookout for updates to see where our work is taking us.
