Swarthmore College Performing Arts Center Green Roof Install

Tuesday, June 18, 2013

 

Our relationship with Swarthmore College began nearly a decade ago. We have had the privilege of working with the college on several other green roofs, a few of which appear on the front cover of popular green roof books.

This past Friday, Andrew went to Swarthmore College to oversee the install of the college's newest green roof. The Furbish Company was awarded the contract to install the 31,000 square foot green roof.

On a beautiful afternoon, the Furbish installers added the final touches on one of the lower roofs. The custom designed green roof is a hybrid single-course system that utilizes heavy-weight drainage and retention fabrics (provided by Resource Conservation Technology), a 100% pumice growing media layer (provided by Stancills Inc.) and sedum mats (by Sedum Master). This system was utilized due to the roof's weight capacity limitation.
