SOKA University Green Roof Controls Stormwater Run-Off and Harnesses the Power of the Sun
October 31st, 2011|
When stormwater run-off issues presented a challenge for Soka University’s new performing arts center, the designers incorporated a green roof into the project to mitigate runoff.
The 14,800 SF green roof system also complemented a solar panel array, which presented some new challenges in plant selection. Florasource, Ltd. worked with local horticultural professionals to carefully select a plant mix that would suit the full sun and shady sections on the green roof.
