In 2009, the City of Toronto was the first city in Canada to enact a green roof bylaw. Now, with 444 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!
Registration to Toronto GRP training includes two exclusive tours. On Thursday, explore the Hugh Garner Housing Co-operative green roof led by project architect, Monica Kuhn. On Friday, experience the green roof that tops Carrot Common.
