Abstract

The goal of our project was to determine the feasibility of installing green roofs in two locations and determine other possible sites in Main South. Green roofs weigh 11 psf to 80+ psf. Roofs need to support their own weight, the green roof, and the code loads. Green roofs cost between $23/sf and $31/sf. There are 47 acres of flat roofs within the 450 acres of combined sewer area in Main South. We identified 57 possible green roof sites.
