Interest in green roofs has been growing for the decade due to changes in public and environmental policies, shift in building design and conservation, and energy awareness. Schnell Contractors, Inc. has been involved in the development of green roof education and design-build techniques for owners and architects throughout our region, helping them achieve LEED certification.
In the United States and in a number of other countries around the world, LEED certification is the recognized Gold Standard for measuring building sustainability. Achieving LEED certification is the best way for you to demonstrate that your building project is truly “green.” Developed by the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC), LEED provides building owners and operators a concise framework for identifying and implementing practical and measurable green building design, construction, operations and maintenance solutions.
Green roofs are an important component in achieving LEED certification.
Green roofs offer the community many advantages and addresses discrete environmental goals. Schnell Contractors, Inc. has the experience and knowledge to provide a “Design-Build” team that can produce an extensive or intensive green roof application:
- Green roof design, including plants based on growth zones.
- Green roof construction.
- Green roof systems.
- Green roof installation.
We can work closely with the specifier and the building architect to make certain that all environmental criteria are met and to provide the expertise required to insure the waterproofing aspects of a green roof as well.
