“We’re going through an affordable housing crisis right now and there is that drumbeat to just build housing as fast as possible and to make it as cheap as possible, but you have to resist that. We want to build housing as fast as possible, but in a way that’s responsible and will work in the long term.” - Zachary Klonoski
Policy Advisor at Portland Mayor's Office
Sustainable cities are about more than cutting carbon emissions – they involve thinking about how people live, travel and interact with the natural world. Ahead of the UN’s Habitat III summit, PF looks at what can be done to make cities greener and more liveable

We are excited to see more green roofs in San Francisco!
"The new legislation will allow owners and developers the option of building 30% of roof space as green roofs, or a combination of green roofs and solar panels. The proposed ordinance builds on legislation requiring 15% roof space to be set aside for solar panels adopted earlier in 2016, and allows owners and developers to implement two square feet of green roofs instead of one square foot of solar panels if they wish."

Nathan Phillip’s Square may be one of the most recognizable green roofs in all of Canada, and it is a key feature of the overall revitalization project for this iconic public space. The design team has already earned numerous awards for their work, and the latest award is one of the most prestigious honours that an architect can receive in the country.

"Beyond the obvious aesthetic appeal of rooftop greenery, vegetated roofs offer benefits to the building owner and the larger community." - Russell M. Sanders, AIA
With New York City’s 80x50 initiative to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions 80 percent by 2050, the stakes are high for the city to adopt progressively more stringent energy codes. Similarly, the Sustainable DC Plan professes the lofty goal of making the nation’s capital “the greenest, healthiest, and most livable city in the nation.”

Sneak peek at the yet to open TTC Downsview Park Station's vegetated roof!

The entire roof is in excellent shape despite the local drought. LiveRoof Ontario credits the teams at +Flynn Canada and Aecon Construction for being vigilant about construction traffic and maintaining a regular watering schedule throughout the drought.

LiveRoof: The World's Most Advanced and Horticulturally Sound Green Roof Solution
Introduction

We have developed a patented "hybrid" modular system which combines the best features of all existing types of green roofing. LiveRoof provides the Natural Function and Natural Beauty of "built in place" green roof systems but without the extensive ongoing costs of maturation. LiveRoof offers the speed of installation of modules but without grid lines or compartmentalization of soil. LiveRoof systems offer the prevegetation of carpet or sod-like green roof systems but with a broader plant palette and without the need for excessive watering and maintenance required by mat systems (for establishment).

We populate each module with locally blended engineered soils and locally selected and grown RoofTop Proven™ plants, under the care of local professional horticulturists. Our grower network has over 500 years collective experience in horticulture, and each local licensed grower typically has decades of experience growing plants in the local climate, and uses this knowledge to select the right plants for the unique challenges of each project. We also have over a dozen Accredited Green Roof Professionals (GRP) in our network and our professional representatives provide industry leading support.

LiveRoof is also an industry leader in research, and our green roof system was the first to receive FM Approval, a Class A Fire Rating, and to conduct Full Scale Wind Uplift testing. Our organization has bred, selected and introduced dozens of plants specifically for thriving under the rigorous challenges of rooftop environments. We have supported institutions in researching optimum stormwater management, the most effective irrigation methods, and much more.
