Kennedy Row, Green Roof Project
Blocks of EPS15 Geofoam
Used as lightweight fill
Kennedy Row, a 142-Unit Luxury Apartment Community with 2-Story Underground Parking in Washington, DC called for a green roof above the parking structure. Blocks of EPS15 geofoam were used as lightweight fill to build up the elevation prior to planting. The EPS15 geofoam weighs less than 1 lb per cubic foot and has a compression strength of 3.6 psi, to easily handle the dead and live loads imposed by the plantings and pedestrian traffic. The end result is a beautiful park like setting.
