On July 9th, three more small extensive green roofs were installed a top the Academy’s High School Building in Newtown Square, PA. The High School has a number of glass walled hallways that look out over unsightly black rooftops. The glass walled hallways provide a spectacular viewing area for the green roofs. This year we covered almost three times as much roof area as we did last year, bring the Academy’s total green roof count to five.
Once again, Micah from Urban Ecoforms joined us to lend his experienced hand at installing green roofs. From the picture below you can see that Micah was in rare form and simply thrilled to be freed from his recent solitary confinement atop his current project in West Philly.
While we were installing the green roofs, we could not help but stop and admire the incredible lushness of the green roofs we installed last summer, especially when last July was brutally hot and dry.
