Fort Bragg's First "Green" Living Roof Installed

Today marks a significant event as Fort Bragg's first "green roof" in unveiled.

As part of the Army's efforts to conserve energy and find innovative ways to promote sustainability, an Army Corps of Engineers project at Fort Bragg has installed a vegetated roof system of succulent plants on the newly constructed Installation Transportation Deployment Support Area.

"This green roof project will help to reduce the heat island effect that can make large, concrete-covered spaces like the Installation Transportation Deployment Support Area unbearably hot in the summer and very costly to operate," said Ekaterina Dones, U.S. Army Corps of Engineers.

As part of the Army’s continuing efforts to conserve energy and find
innovative ways to promote sustainability, an Army Corps of Engineers
project at Fort Bragg has installed a vegetated roof system of succulent
plants on the newly constructed Installation Transportation Deployment
Support Area (ITDSA). The more than $10 million facility will allow units to
prepare and inspect vehicles and equipment for transportation by air, rail
and sea.

“We are very proud of this green roof project, which will help to
reduce the heat island effect that can make large, concrete-covered spaces
like the Installation Transportation Deployment Support Area unbearably hot
in the summer and very costly to operate,” said Ekaterina Dones, U.S. Army
Corps of Engineers.
