Next Level Stormwater Management’s contribution to wind testing science and technical knowledge

CSA A123.24 First Such Test in the World

Next Level Stormwater Management (NLSM) participated in developing the Canadian Standard Test Method for Wind Resistance of Modular Vegetated Roof Assembly – the first such test in the world.

NLSM has tested our vegetated roof systems at the NRC lab in Ottawa, Ontario and at the UL laboratory in Montreal, Quebec.

Additionally, NLSM participated in the National Research Council Canada (NRC) field monitoring testing done at Humber College near the Toronto Pearson Airport.

Next Level Stormwater Management was key in the development of the Standard test method for the dynamic wind uplift resistance of membrane-roofing systems.
