Climate-responsive Evidence-based Green-Roof Design Decision Support Protocol for the U.S. Climate
The researchers established a methodology for a Climate-Responsive Evidence-Based Green-Roof Design Decision Support Tool that uses finely tuned performance modeling with calibration by the actual measured data from existing best practices. By utilizing these composite best-practice cases as a source for reference data, this project would be able to provide stakeholders (e.g., architects, facility managers, building / roof engineers, owners) with readily applicable and reliable green roof design solutions for new / renovation projects.
