Rooftop Green House

One downtown St. Louis building is being transformed from regular rooftop to an urban farm. Urban Harvest STL is creating a “green” roof landscape farm on a 10,000 sq ft rooftop. Frontenac Engineering was able to contribute our expertise to this exciting endeavor. We conducted an analysis of the existing structure of the reinforced concrete roof deck. The purpose of our analysis was to determine the allowable live load that the existing roof structure can safely support in order to provide guidance on the maximum amounts of landscaping material that can be permitted on the roof.

Please check out the video below on the project.
