GROW 1000 - Green Roofs - Details, Installation and Maintenance

Green Roofs Part-time Studies Course

School of Construction and the Environment

Course Details

GROW 1000 is designed for students, design professionals, contractors and planners who already have a basic understanding of green roofs. The course provides students with an understanding of green roof performance criteria, and offers knowledge and skills to manage the details, installation and maintenance aspects of green roof design. Students will be exposed to leading edge information on materials, design details, and implementation methods, and learn about green roof policy. The course presents regionally-relevant solutions supported by the current research at the Centre for Architectural Ecology (CAE). Through a project, students will integrate the lectures with practical hands-on activities. Students will further apply their knowledge through case study discussions and a tour of the BCIT Elevated Lab.
