2010 AIA Convention - Roof as Floor

Roof as Floor: Lessons Learned from 30 Years of Designing Green Roofs
Speakers:
Susan Weiler, FASLA, Partner, OLIN
David Rubin, Partner, OLIN

Unfortunately, I felt this presentation was one big marketing campaign. There were over 140 slides almost all of which were pictures of projects done by the sponsoring firm, OLIN. The only thing I really got of use was the following points.
· 3" of soil is minimum for small plants and run-off control
· ventilation is important
· structural coordination is important
· understanding the finish floor elevation is important
· but drainage is the most important
· and of course water proofing is really important too.
