Green Roof Tour
Friday, December 2, 2011 from 11:50 AM to 2:30 PM (EST)
“An enlightening experience bringing everyone up to speed with the nature of green roof and wall integration, in both interior and external facades. The tour gave a professional insight into the choice, design and maintenance of substrates, and the latest design trends.”
Ben Pace, ESD Consultant, Cundall
