UVA Chooses ES&C to Install Green Roof

ES&C was recently awarded a contract with the University of Virginia (UVA)  to install a LiveRoof brand modular green roof on a portion of the Biomedical Engineering and Medical Science Building (MR5) in Charlottesville, VA.  This installation of about 1300 square feet of Live Roof modules will be installed in the Spring of 2011, with monitoring to be completed over the following year.

Also known as “living roofs”, green roofs serve several purposes for a building, such as absorbing rainwater, providing insulation, creating a habitat for wildlife, and helping to lower urban air temperatures and combat the heat island effect.
