Green Roof Metrics Class

Posted by Gwendolyn Childers on January 14, 2009

The Student Sustainability Committee funded a the Green Roof Metrics Class Project, which will support class projects to assess the impact on sustainability of the green roof on the new Business Instructional Facility. Students in Professor Werth's Hazardous Waste Management course in Spring 2009 and Sustainable Urban Engineering course in Fall 2009 will make measurements of the filtration and thermal properties of the green roof. Hopefully, these projects will also help establish the roof as a laboratory for future student and faculty research projects on this topic. The SSC gave $13,100 in funding.
