A Growing Trend
The roof replacement designed by SUPERSTRUCTURES for the Savoy Manor building at Hostos Community College is now substantially complete. The existing roofing was removed down to the metal deck – the new roof is a low-maintenance green roof, planted with pre-grown sedum vegetation. Green roofs offer many benefits: conserving energy, improving stormwater management, mitigating the urban heat island, and increasing the longevity of roofing membranes, as well being more aesthetically pleasing.
