What are Intensive Green Roof Systems?

Whether you're an architect or developer looking for more sustainable design solutions, the importance of adding an intensive green roof system to your next Vancouver project cannot be overlooked.

Intensive green roof systems are becoming more popular in densely populated cities where large swaths of land are not readily available, and high-rises are the norm.

Through the use of soil, trees, shrubs, and smaller plants, intensive green roof systems create a diverse ecosystem within the middle of a bustling city. Those who build an intensive green roof system can expect environmental and cost-saving benefits for years to come.

What are the Benefits of Intensive Green Roof Systems?

Intensive green roofs create a sustainable ecosystem in the middle of the city. As a result, the building produces a smaller carbon footprint and creates livable areas for plants and wildlife.

When it comes to energy management and maintenance, intensive green roof systems can harness solar energy to drastically reduce energy costs. Furthermore, they require less maintenance than traditional roofing designs and are much better at managing Lower Mainland stormwater.
