Green Roof Professional Training

February 16 - February 18, 2017
550 Ontario Street, Toronto, ON

In 2009, the City of Toronto was the first city in Canada to enact a green roof bylaw. Now, with approximately 500 green roofs in the city, and every new building with a gross floor plan of 2,000m2 required to install a green roof, there’s never been a greater demand for green roof designers, practitioners, and maintenance personnel.

Learn how to:

  • Conduct cost-benefit analyses to make a business case for green roofs
  • Design to achieve multiple performance benefits
  • Develop a project budget
  • Determine essential qualifications for project teams
  • Integrate green roofs with other building systems for maximum client benefit
  • Identify implementation issues for new and retrofit buildings
  • Write and interpret green roof specifications, and much more!
