Free Webinar Series

Register below for 3 hours over 3 consecutive weeks in December or January

Familiar with green roofs?  Still there are many specifics necessary to maximize performance and achieve long-term success. This NutsN’Bolts Educational Series aims to fill a gap and provide essential and practical information to take your project to the next level.

In this journey, the series navigates through the complete green roof process; from recognizing opportunities, to planning, material selection, system design, specifications and drawings, construction and maintenance.

Please Sign Up for 3 Parts Separately


Part 1 – Green Roofs: Opportunities & Planning 


January 12, 2022 here

In the first installment, participants learn how green roof technology can open new opportunities for various stakeholders and that a successful project requires a multidisciplinary, collaborative approach. We examine, the often overlooked, key design considerations necessary in the planning process to ensure each green roof project will receive a good start because “well begun is half done”. LACES Approved; 1 PDH

Learning Objectives

At the end of this webinar, participants will be able to:

1. Recognize the benefits green roofs contribute on building and community levels.
2. Apply a multidisciplinary collaborative approach in designing a green roof.
3. Identify and analyze opportunities that could benefit from green roof technology.
4. Evaluate the key design considerations involved during the planning process of a green roof.


Part 2 – Green Roofs: Material Selection & Design Goals 

January 19, 2022 here

In the second installment, participants get an overview on the North American green roof market. We explore individual components, learn about their functions and selection criterion, and how to put them together into engineered systems to achieve specific design goals. An emphasize is placed on the strongest driver behind the current green roof growth in North America, stormwater management. LACES Approved; 1 PDH

Learning Objectives

At the end of this webinar, participants will be able to:
1. Distinguish the various types of green roofs, their market share and cost positions.
2. Define typical components and their assembly placement based on functional criteria.
3. Select proper components to create green roof systems to achieve various design intents.
4. Incorporate retention and detention elements to elevate stormwater management capacity.


Part 3 – Green Roofs: Clarity in Construction Documents

January 26, 2022 here

In the final installment, participants learn how to communicate their green roof design goals clearly and effectively through construction documentation including specifications and drawings. We also take a step-by-step look at a construction case study. Finally, we complete our journey by highlighting the green roof aftercare and maintenance necessary to ensure long term success. LACES Approved; 1 PDH 

Learning Objectives

At the end of this webinar, participants will be able to:

1. Create clear and effective construction documentation to communicate the requirements.
2. Recognize and avoid architectural and engineering design pitfalls that are often overlooked.
3. Understand the construction and installation process of a typical green roof.
4. Specify maintenance program to ensure long term success of the project.
