New Guidance Available about Green Roofs on Historic Buildings
Natioanl Park Service
The National Park Service has launched new web-based guidance on the use of green roofs on historic buildings.
Information on the Green Roofs on Historic Buildings site includes basic descriptions of green roofs and how they are constructed, special considerations for installations on historic structures, and guidance for meeting the Secretary's Standards for Rehabilitation. This guidance was written by Liz Petrella in the Technical Preservation Services office.
The direct link to the overview page is www.nps.gov/tps/sustainability/new-technology/green-roofs.htm.
It is also accessible from any page on the TPS website by using the "Hot Topics" drop down menu on the right side of our top navigation bar.
