In an ongoing effort to promote sustainability by reducing the volume and velocity of stormwater runoff, Loyola University Chicago is installing a green roof on Cuneo Hall, a new academic building. The 2,400-square-foot installation is Loyola’s seventh green roof.
The LiveRoof® Hybrid Green System from LiveRoof, LLC (Spring Lake, Mich.) was selected for the project. LiveRoof was previously used for the 7,650-square foot green roof installed on the Mundelein College building, a historical landmark on the Loyola University Chicago campus, during a 2009 renovation project. LiveRoof was also installed in June 2011for the 5,400-square-foot green roof atop the new Norville Center for Intercollegiate Athletics.
