Part of our trade with the Rebuilding Exchange was facilitating the donation of a green roof system from HPAC to the RX. The system was installed for the opening of the art center’s new building 5 years ago. Either maintenance was required that they were not prepared for or the plants were mis-selected for the partially-shaded roof.
The Rebuilding Exchange is the ideal organization to find the system a home. They are entrenched in Chicago’s green building community. With planning, the system could be installed on a green building, potentially attaining points for the USGBC’s popular Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) program.
