Green Building Highlight: The Academic Commons Green Roof

The roof is composed of both a light-colored reflective membrane as well as areas of vegetation. The vegetated "green roof" contains over six species of native sedum, increasing storm water management as well as a providing a habitat for the local wildlife.  The roof is frequented by the University's resident honey bee population. The overall "heat island" effect is decreased because less heat is absorbed on site due to the combination of the vegetated roof, reflective roofing materials, and the reduced area of site hardscape.
