The owner came to Chelsea Garden Center with a challenging project – install a beautiful, low maintenance Green Roof that provides heating and cooling benefits to the building below. Our decades of experience enabled us to overcome the technical challenges of delivering and installing a living rooftop including an irrigation system three stories above the ground.
Delivering and installing seven (7,000) thousand trays of beautiful mixed sedum plants. Once installed, the green roof would become the visual focal point for the tower rising thirty two (32) stories above. A crane was utilized to get the trays onto the roof in specialized units.
This bird’s eye view is of the upper portion of the roof deck that is shaped like the bow of a ship. The trays are lush and overflowing with slow growing sedums. Once knitted, they will form a low maintenance green carpet that cools the spaces below in the summer and insulates them in the winter months.
