Title: The Evergreen Roof Project: Standards, Methods and Software for Evaluating Living Roof Systems
This project is developing a Web site, www.evergreenroofs.com, for access to data on existing "living roof" systems. The researchers are also compiling methods for evaluating living roofs and developing a software design to facilitate green roof procurement. The project is collecting results from experiments on two existing living roofs installed at Evergreen State College in Olympia, Washington, and data provided by a partner from six residential roof installations in Puget Sound.
