The Memphis Bioworks Foundation in Tennessee features an impressive outdoor gathering space completed with the Garden Roof® and Ultimate Assembly ®. The building was designed as a Protected Membrane Roof because of the benefits and advantages over conventional roofs, such as increased roof life span (more than 2x longer), reduced storm water runoff, lower costs for heating and cooling, and more.

The unique pattern of pavers is achieved with the combination of Limestone Gray, Cream and Natural color pavers. This project exemplifies the possibilities of combining hardscape and softscape into a Protected Membrane Roof.
