McGill University’s Green Rooftop Collaboration

wwett wwett

McGill University is quickly developing a reputation for green excellence that spans world-wide, it is considered one of the world’s greatest universities.The teachers and researchers of McGill University are taking their research culture a quantum leap further with the opening of a multimillion-dollar Life Sciences Complex. This landmark facility, the largest construction project in McGill’s history, will encourage even greater interdisciplinary research by bringing some of the world’s key scientific talent under one roof and strengthening Montreal’s position as a leading hub of biomedical research in Canada and beyond.

The Life Sciences Complex is also going green with its sustainable rooftop. Other buildings on campus are also following the same agenda. Instead of traditional roof coverings, such as shingles or tar and gravel, a large section of the green roof is divided into raised beds containing plants. These plants are either self-seeding annuals or perennials. In each bed on the LSC (Life Sciences Complex), the plants form a letter, spelling out “VIE” (Life) when viewed from above. Green rooftops help to absorb rain and melt water so that less water is running off the roof, entering the sewer system, and needing to be treated at the city’s wastewater treatment station. Green rooftops also absorb less heat than a traditional roof, reducing the amount of energy needed to cool a building throughout the summer.
