Who would have thought.

While visiting a relative of mine at the new Metro Hospital  in Wyoming, Alex and I couldn’t believe our eyes….a bio roof!

Looking down from the 3rd floor

If you are wondering what is so exciting about this colorful roof before you, you’ll be interested to know it is a biological, “bio”, roof.  The purpose behind implementing these bio roofs into new buildings is to reduce run-off, increase the buildings temperature retention ability, and filter pollutants (just to name a few).  I’m looking forward to seeing how Grand Rapids’ booming medical community will continue to implement environmentally friendly technologies such as this into their new buildings!
