This project explores the impact of installing a vegetated green roof on the first office building of the new City Square Development in Worcester, Massachusetts. Potential LEED credits were considered in the design of the green roof, a structural analysis of the roof under the additional load was performed, and a cost benefit analysis was conducted. Building information modeling software was used to aid in the design process including the Revit Design Suite, and ROBOT Structural Analysis.
