Today, KU’s School of Business Capitol Federal Hall celebrates its public grand opening. A key feature of the sustainable building is a vegetated roof, and the university is working educate students, staff and the community on the benefits provided by their new green roof system.

See our press release to learn more about this living roof, which was supplied by LiveRoof licensed grower Roof Top Sedums.

A public grand opening for Capitol Federal Hall is set for 4 to 7 p.m. today at the new building, 1654 Naismith Drive. After the event, the building will not reopen again until June 7, when faculty and staff have moved in and KU summer classes begin.  Learn more about the building in this article by the Lawrence Journal-World.

The contractors worked hard to prevent a disruption to traffic on the campus. While this led to additional material handling, the installation team succeeded with a beautiful end result.
