SIG taught a LEED Green Associate exam prep class on Thursday, August 27th at the Five Borough Technical Services Division of the New York City Department of Parks and Recreation.
The NY Parks Department headquarters has the fifth largest green roof in the city. It has over 30 different growing systems covering 30,000 square feet of roof. This makes it one of the most diverse green roofs in the world! In addition to green roofs, the headquarters has hydroponic tomatoes and bee hives. Find out more about how the NY Parks and Rec department is trying to promote green roofs to the city of New York, here.
