Javits Green Roof

Reducing energy use by 26% and water run-off to the tune of 6.8 million gallons a year!

Here’s a link to a video about the FXFOWLE/Epstein designed green roof at the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center in New York. The video, courtesy of our friends at greenroofs.com, shows how the ‘Zero Flor Pre-Vegetative Mat’ system is installed as well as the benefits this green roof provides the Javits Center. Which when combined with the new glass façade and the energy efficient lighting will allow Javits to achieve a 26% energy use reduction as well as a reduction of 6.8 million gallons of water run-off each year!. youtu.be/Xx8YZNL83E8
