Hear from NYC experts and building owners about creating possibilities for your rooftop, through green roofs, cool roofs and stormwater management. Proper rooftop management can reduce your heating bills, prevent stormwater runoff, mitigate the city’s heat island effect, and even provide a peaceful garden for your tenants. This workshop will explore how the rooftop, a critical element of the city’s infrastructure system, is often a missed opportunity for sustainable building elements.
