KNS article on my buddy Jay. He bought an old eyesore building on Broadway, gutted it, and is completely renovating it into some very nice commercial space. Part of that invovles a green roof. Stop by and check out what he’s doing if you’re interested.
Proponents of green roofs rave about the benefits. Energy savings routinely reach more than 25 percent. Plants convert heat and soil moisture into humidity, which brings about evaporative cooling. Vegetation-growing roofs reduce noise, improve air quality and are pleasing to the eye.
