Our team partners and collaborates with architectural firms, conventional roofing and construction companies, developers, engineers, and facilities managers across the U.S. to design, engineer, install & maintain highly customized Green Roof Systems.

The company was the first to successfully file the New York City Green Roof Tax Abatement, an incentive that was established in August 2008 and unused until our action in May 2010.

The company seeking an unpaid Intern for the Fall 2010 semester to aid in the company’s civic and academic advocacy for green roofs. We will show you everything about the development of a green roof project from start to finish.  Our goal is to facilitate the use of green roofs and encourage
everyone in NYC to utilize this abatement.  Green roofs improve the environment by facilitating energy efficiency, storm water management, and
extend the lifetime of a conventional roof.  Universities are using green roofs to create research reports, which will eventually help building
owners, and government officials worldwide to better understand our industry’s impact on the future.
