GREEN ROOF ALERT at Chicago’s O’Hare International Airport!
Posted by ChicagoismynewBlog! on September 21, 2009
This green roof is located on top of Building 607, the New South Vault Building at Chicago’s O’Hare International Airport. The measures in at 17,800 square feet and has a six-inch deep layer of growing medium with native grasses planted. One of the many benefits of installing a green roof is that during the day, workers have already noticed a cooling effect when working in the building compared to conventional roofed buildings.
