The Chicago Department of Aviation (CDA) has the most green roofs of any airport in the world. Its environmental commitment is highly visible as green roofs span the size of six football fields. These may be seen by more than 90 million passengers traveling over its skies every year.
Green roofs at airports are practical and cost effective
Pre-vegetated systems such asSherway Garden’s are the most practical and cost effective to install. Operational and maintenance cost savings are achieved from increased roof life span, energy use reduction, and storm water quantity/quality management. Additional benefits achieved include a reduction in noise and heat islands, air quality protection, and enhanced aesthetics.
