Forks Township Public Works Greenroof

Forks Township, PA

Working alongside the architects and green roof consultants, ThinkGreen designed and built a 25,000sf green roof over the new Forks Township Public Works building. Bermed into the existing hillside, the building’s greenroof emerges connects seamlessly to the surrounding landscape. The roof manages a considerable portion of the site’s stormwater through collection, evapotranspiration, and storage in an underground cistern for reuse. Surface-level raingardens collect and infiltrate water from the roads and truck parking areas throughout the rest of the site.
