Episcopal Academy Raises the Roof

As the procession of minivans dropped off their little darlings for another exciting day at summer camp the sound of heavy machinery and green roof construction joined the chorus.  Green Roof Technology and UrbanEcoforms with the help of the Episcopal Academy's green roof advocates Joe and John made record time with the installation of the Episcopal Academy's first two green roofs.

The already eco-minded school has an impressive collection of energy efficient buildings and outdoor learning opportunities.  The green roofs are an invaluable asset in expanding their commitment to the environment and hands on learning.

Both green roofs are visible from glass hallways providing excellent observation of seasonal changes.  The extensive green roofs feature a mix of sedum plugs and cuttings with a grass swale and picturesque clusters of allium.
