  • Nowadays the request for good soundproofing in multi-story buildings is more in demand than ever. New construction methods and new materials used cause different ways to do the soundproofing to achieve performant level of noise reduction. To reach our goal, we will have to go through the different components of the buildings such as the structure, the floors, the ceilings, the insulation, etc. and the way to obtain a good result.

  • Description: Green roof systems are typically described in terms of soil depth (intensive vs. extensive) or where they are assembled (built-in-place vs. modular). These are useful categories, but don’t address key elements of green roof design, such as drainage, water storage, roof slope, and other considerations. This presentation will review different green roof systems and components, and their use in meeting project goals relating to storm water management, integration with hardscape, and constructability.
