Roofs have the potential to do more for the community and environment than ever before.  Sustainable design continues to push new construction and renovation towards solutions that address the urban heat island effect, stormwater management, and rewilding urban areas.

Incorporating a vegetated roof helps to reverse the heat sink of dense cities; it helps to clean the air from plant oxygenation; it can retain up to two-thirds of rainfall in a storm event that reduces stress on the stormwater system; it increases biodiversity of the flora and fauna; and it even acts as part of the buildings cooling system that saves money in the winter and summer months.
