Technical Plan The construction of green roofs starts with the careful and detail landscape design to fulfill the customer’s requests. Landscapes specialist analyze roofs dimensions and, in combination with customer’s desired outcome, produces a draft and suggestions to the project at hand. Once the proposed design is approved, structural analysts evaluate the structural support of the building and determine if repairs are need for the success of the project. Structural analysis could take up to two months depending on the size, complexity, and age of the roof. Structural analysis includes all operation design, including irrigation and drainage system, transportation of material needed, and any local and state permits needed for the construction of green roofs. After the roof is proven to withhold green roof additives, the implementation of irrigation and drainage systems are placed on the roof to ensure the survival of the plant membrane. In average, Irrigation and drainage systems are assembled in one week and tried on the beginning of the third week. Green roof’s materials are brought to the work site for implementation. This process encompasses the careful examination of the plant membrane, elevation to roof’s height, and placement according to the landscape design. It is estimated that the implementation process takes an average of a month. After installation, electronic field vector monitoring is applied to detect any breaches in the membrane that may cause leaking in the future. In the next page we have included a tentative schedule for the installation of green roofs. 6
