The Episcopal Academy has long been known for leading the way in academic excellence. Adding to this commitment to enhance the mind, body, and spirit of it's pupils the academy will be installing a series of green roofs on their academic buildings under the guidance of Green Roof Technology.
The green roofs will feature an extensive greenroof set up composed mainly of sedum plants and hardy herbs. The green roofs will be used to promote local ecology, aesthetic appeal, in addition to being an interactive learning tool. Visible from high traffic areas in the building, these green roofs will be an ever present and key tool in promoting the latest in sustainable practice and design.
