I admit that my experience is limited. We designed just one green roof as a demonstration project for a storm water authority, circa 2004. The utility especially likes the decrease in rate of run off. In fact we have two spouts side by side to demonstrate the difference between the vegetated roof and an equal area of typical roof. The difference is dramatic.
Lately I've been wondering, "Is it just me or has the din about green roofs died down?" The touted benefits list is fairly long.
Two years ago on September 27, 2012 Architekwiki went live with almost no content and zero readers. Today we are doing a little better; and most importantly our stats are getting better all the time.
So I am going to celebrate with cake and ice cream!!! You have my permission to splurge, too (just this once)!
AND - EVERYONE GETS A PRESENT!
It is time to share where things stand with the Corbu project, and a lot has happened over the summer.
As you may know, I am a retired architect who is trying to come up with a (much) better way for architects to take care of accounting chores - easier, quicker, and better.
Corbu, the name we were considering and which we are going to run with, is now 4-1/2 months old. We have obtained a website domain name and have an almost-ready-for-prime-time website that I will be using to share Best Practices that I have picked up from all my research.
