Event Description

Learn about the benefits, design elements, installation considerations, and maintenance requirements of two green roofs in Assembly Square on this green roof tour led by OMNI Ecosystems and Recover Green Roofs.

On this tour you will see the recently completed 21st floor Sky Deck and second-story courtyard of Montaje Apartments, a mixed-use building at Assembly Row in Somerville and discuss the challenges – load capacity, waterproofing, conveyance, etc. – of designing green spaces over structure.

From the 21st floor Sky Deck, two other Assembly Row green roofs, built by Recover Green Roofs, are visible and will be used to discuss the variety of uses for rooftop green spaces.

Afterwards, join the group at American Fresh Brewhouse, which is around the block from the green roofs, for a complimentary drink and an opportunity to continue the discussion and network with other green professionals.

Learning Objectives:

• Understand the variety of economic, ecological, and social benefits of green roofs and discuss how to communicate these benefits to clients.

• Identify different types of green roof systems, their build-ups and functions.

• Understand installation and maintenance requirements for green roofs.

• Understand design considerations, including commonly misrepresented design details.
