CITY HALL GREEN ROOF

Farr Associates provided construction administration for the first government building in the United States to undertake a sustainability initiative of such a significant scope.  The project was one of three national pilot projects sponsored by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.  The design includes over 150 species of native, cultivated and non-native plants, and utilizes both intensive and extensive systems.  Water use is mitigated through collection of storm water that is recycled for irrigation.
