#51: De Pere's Green Roof at City Hall - find places to build this in Sturgeon Bay


"De Pere City Hall was looking to set a precedent for sustainability in the area. Located near Green Bay, Wisconsin, this client needed a green roof system that was going to provide all of the wonderful benefits of a green roof while remaining resilient to the cold Wisconsin winters. Working closely with the owners, Hanging Gardens helped them to determine the best system, and went about placing a design together that would maximize heating and cooling cost savings on this 2-story building and provide a rich aesthetic for passersby on the nearby hiking trail near the Fox River. Residents in De Pere now have one of the first green roofs in the area to call their own!"
