I am assembling a proposal to a condo corp board (managing a 25 year old building with a roof of approximately 18000 sq ft):
- when is a green roof economical and advisable?
- what additional risks and liabilities are imposed by the "green" solution; what are the insurance implications?
- what are the technical and safety issues and opportunities around "green" roofs?
- what are the ongoing operation and maintenance cost (savings), expenses and staffing (workload) requirements?
- what are the "sustainability" arguments to use when selling the concept to residents (shareholders)
- can green roofing be integrated with passive energy-generation infrastructure?
Well positioned marketing literature and data would be helpful. Please advise.+7 Other Responses
