Amenity Spaces on Conventional Roofs
Thursday, May 20, 2021, 11:30 AM - 1:00 PM PDT
Category: 2021 Member Meetings

This will be a discussion on the increasing use of roofing surfaces for green roofs and occupied amenity spaces. They typically include planters, decking or paver walking surfaces, dog walks, grills, firepits and p-patches. The discussion will focus on these assemblies on wood structures. We will talk about some lessons learned through issues that have arisen and several different design approaches to address these. Given the consulting professional audience we would like to include a discussion of professional standards for how these assemblies are treated. One of the things that SeaBEC can do is help establish the standard of care for enclosures in our community. Rooftop amenity spaces are very common and seem to have a variety of different ways they are handled.
