Green Roofs for Healthy Cities Launches New Green Roof Course in Washington, DC on July 18

Toronto, Canada:  July 12, 2013. Green Roofs for Healthy Cities (GRHC) is pleased to be launching Green Roof Design and Installation, a new course that combines fundamental green roof design and installation concepts with the very latest information on green roof benefit calculations, technical standards, product innovations, and design and installation best practices.

“This new peer reviewed course combines the essential elements of the former Green Roof Design 101 and Design and Installation 201 courses with a significant body of valuable new material on the costs, benefits and installation practices within this rapidly evolving industry,” said Jeffrey Bruce, Chair of Green Roofs for Healthy Cities.

Green Roof Design and Installation is the newest addition to a series of full-day courses which prepare attendees for accreditation as a Green Roof Professional, a distinction shared by over 600 forward-thinking green building professionals.  “We’re confident that this training provides Green Roof Professionals with the most comprehensive information on green roof design and installation available in North America,” said Steven Peck, President of Green Roofs for Healthy Cities.  “Green Roof Professionals are helping to drive the industry which grew by 24 percent in 2012 over the previous year,” he added.

The launch of Green Roof Design and Installation in Washington, DC on July 18th marks the beginning of a three-day intensive Green Roof Boot Camp presented in partnership with DC Greenworks, a non-profit organization that implements green infrastructure solutions in the National Capital Region.

Course attendees are provided with expert instruction from industry leaders, a 300+ page resource manual, a USB drive with technical papers from the past ten CitiesAlive conferences, and an opportunity to tour the Casey Trees green roof and learn about local policies.  Additional GRHC course dates include fall offerings in San Francisco, Toronto, Chicago, and New York.  See www.greenroofs.org/education for dates.
