Please join the Minnesota Green Roofs Council for a 2013 International Low Impact Development Symposium wrap-up lecture highlighting green roofs as a storm water tool. We are pleased to host Dr. Elizabeth Fassman-Beck, who will share her experience establishing the first retrofit green roof in Auckland, New Zealand and developing green roof design standards through a research program at the University of Auckland. Dr. Fassman-Beck will also present some highlights of her book-in-progress, which explores the best ways to foster communication between landscape architects and engineers during the design, construction, and maintenance of green roofs to manage stormwater runoff.
