SOPREMA® Senior Product Manager to Deliver Webinar on Green Roofs

08-30-2021 | Media

WADSWORTH, Ohio (August 20, 2021) — 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 helpful categories but do not address critical elements of green roof design, such as drainage, water storage, roof slope and other considerations.

Tom Stuewe, senior product manager and team lead for SOPREMA, Inc., will deliver a live webinar for Building Enclosure and the Continuing Education Center about what’s necessary for designing and integrating successful green roofing projects. Join him at 2 p.m. Tuesday, Aug. 31, from the comfort of your home or office to hear “Green Roofs: Integrating Blue and Gray.”

This webcast will review different green roof systems and components and their use in meeting project goals relating to stormwater management, integration with hardscape and constructability. Plus, attendees can earn one (1) AIA LU/HSW credit, one (1) IIBEC CEH or 0.1 IACET CEU for participating.

In this webinar, you will learn to:

  1. Describe the components which make up green roof systems, the range of options for each component type, and their benefits and drawbacks.
  2. Employ strategies for integrating planting beds with adjacent hardscapes to maximize water detention and retention in green roofs.
  3. Identify several types of green roof systems and the advantages and disadvantages of these systems regarding site conditions and project goals.
  4. Explore structural, drainage and waterproofing considerations at transitions between planted and paved areas.

Stuewe joined SOPREMA in June 2018. He has experience in various roles spanning a 20-year career in the building industry, 15 of which has been in roofing. He has helped to develop industry-leading roof membranes and systems, restoration coatings, low odor and low VOC membrane adhesives, and plaza deck systems for the commercial building envelope.
