Music City Center features green roof

The recently completed Music City Center is on track to be certified Silver Level LEED – Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design – by the U.S. Green Building Council. One of the elements that will be considered during the certification process is the building’s green roof, designed to reduce the convention center’s overall energy usage. Four acres of the roof are made up of 14 different types of vegetation, landscaped to reflect Tennessee’s rolling hills. The green roof also absorbs rainfall, reducing the amount of storm water runoff. Some rainfall will find its way into a 360,000 gallon collection tank on the roof, and the collected water will be used to irrigate the roof and other landscaping.
