Location: Sutton Place Hotel - Rutherford Room, 10235 101 Street
11:30 am Registration
12:00 pm Luncheon
12:35 pm Guest Speaker

Penny Dunford, CSLA, Senior Landscape Architect, Stantec

Stantec's Edmonton office is in the process of installing a state-of-the-art green roof on the third-floor roof of its atrium building. The green roof will contribute to Stantec's LEED silver rating application and will provide many benefits to the surrounding environment, including reduced rain, stormwater, and snow melt runoff, as moisture is trapped by the plants and soil. It will also reduce the amount of "heat island" effect as plants absorb reflected heat that normally builds up in urban areas, which will decrease the use of air conditioning.

Ms. Dunford will discuss the pros and cons of the various types of green roofs as well as the benefits of constructing such a project. The structural requirements, typical hard components and plant material needed will be outlined.
