Creating Green Roof specifications, review of tender papers and on-site training to ensure no details are overseen.
Remember that Canada has no universally accepted standards or codes for the construction of Green Roofs. As a result, various trades, architects and designers are often left on their own to create specifications. These may be a compilation from roofing standards and landscape standards, rather than a unified approach to Green Roofs using industry best practices based on the European models and codes. Currently many specifications for a green roof instruct the builder how to install material A, and then how material B should be installed. A much better way is to clearly understand how the roof should be constructed in a way that the relation between materials A and B are understood, as all materials have to work together within a green roof construction.
Project and material specifications should be clear to everyone, they should not only tell you the order in which they should be installed, they should guide you step by step through an installation. The specifications should flow from one stage/step of installation to the next, where it refers back to the previews steps.
We Can Help You:
- Write a step by step specification , where we link each step so installers clearly understand the relationship between materials
- review specifications you want to use, and report if the specification would work while also ensuring nothing was missed.
- Guide you in understanding the relation between the specifications and the materials and process.
