Pavers Galore

Contributed by Lauren Mandel

How many ways can you incorporate concrete pavers into a green roof? Just ask Roofmeadow’s new Landscape Architecture Department! During the past year we designed a showcase green roof for Hanover® Architectural Products, an industry leader in architectural pavers for over 40 years, at their headquarters in Hanover, PA.

With patio seating, seatwalls, and a stage area, employees are free to enjoy the amenity space at lunchtime and for events and presentations. Hanover also uses the newly-built rooftop as a tour ground for potential clients and partners. Part of the design fun involved figuring out unintended uses for Hanover’s off the shelf and custom products. These innovative approaches enhance the diversity of products that Hanover already offers.

Roofmeadow-licensed Master Contractor G.R.A.S.S. installed the green roof this spring, placing each paver with precision.

The project took six weeks to construct, with stacked walls, pedestal pavers, companion pavers, precast-concrete curbs, and a diversity of herbaceous perennials, shrubs, and trees.

We will certainly be tracking the progression of this project to ensure that the plants grow, mature and flourish!
