Learning Outcomes
Learners will be able to explain the function, application, and benefits of vegetated green roofs, blue roofs, living walls, and rainwater retention systems as well as their plant, engineered and drainage components.

Learners will be able to explain the implication of the Clean Water Act and upcoming site run-off reduction standards for stormwater management and green infrastructure applications for the building envelope leading to run-off retention and reduction strategies reducing mechanical equipment reliance, thereby producing energy reduction and cost savings.

Learners will be able to explain the environmental value of green building envelope infrastructure through such practices as rooftop farming to mitigate heat island effects, increase pollution control, and CO2 sequestration.

Learners will be able to identify, describe, and avoid common points of failure for vegetated green roofs and living roofs, and they will be able to identify and apply strategies for successful vegetated roofs.
