Green Roofs - Living Architecture Monitor - Fall 2016 - 6


INTERVIEWS
meadow systems, categorized as
"comprehensive green roofs",
combining the best qualities
of extensive green roofs (i.e.
lightweight) and intensive
green roofs (i.e. biodiversity,
stormwater management,
energy reduction), outperform
sedum systems across these
metrics.
Barry Miller (BM): That's
often in the eye of the
beholder, so to speak, and
whether or not the roof is
intended for the people to
use. Personally, I would rate
performance on factors such
as 1) energy savings (HVAC),
2) stormwater management
benefits, 3) savings in water
resources, and 4) the extent
to which it provides food and
pollinating sources. Of course,
if people can go up to enjoy it,
all the better! As a Landscape
Architect, we always hope to

design green roofs that provide
all of these benefits and approach each green roof design
with the idea of "replacing" the
landscape - and its requisite
functions - that is lost at the
ground level.
Amy Falder / Chris Brunner
(AF / CB): It's got to meet the
client's requirements and expectations, whomever the client
may be. This could be purely
aesthetic. It could be environmentally driven. It could even
be economically driven, but if it
isn't meeting the client's goals
and expectations how well is it
really performing?
LAM: What do you think is the
most important factor indetermining the long term performance of
a green roof?
BM: The first thought
that comes to mind is how
well it prevents leaking, and
minimizes maintenance to

LIVING ARCHITECTURE MONITOR / FALL 2016 / 6

AND WITHOUT SITE
SPECIFIC MAINTENANCE,
THE BEST BUILT, BEST
DESIGNED GREEN ROOF
WITH THE HIGHEST
QUALITY MATERIALS WILL
EVENTUALLY FALL SHORT.
