Planning going strong for campus green roof


West elevation of Howlett green roof

Chadwick Arboretum & Learning Gardens will install a 10,000 square-foot green roof on Howlett Hall next fall. Benefits include mitigation of storm water runoff to the Olentangy River, increased biodiversity, and energy savings, aligning with the University Sustainability Plan. Perhaps the defining quality of this green roof is its location. Accessible from 139 Howlett Hall — just beyond the front doors of the building — the green roof will be the first of its kind in Columbus – and a tremendous resource for education, industry advancement, and research.
