Additional Details

There is overwhelming evidence that a connection to nature actively supports the healing process for patients, especially children. There are also many other reasons to incorporate a green or living roof into a design, including energy conservation, water management, and financial benefits. For one project in Palo Alto, California, the benefits of having a green roof transcended financial gains, and instead served a higher role.

The Lucile Packard Children’s Hospital (LPCH) at Stanford is ranked as a top pediatric hospital in the nation.  A 2017 expansion opened a new 521,000 sq.ft. building and 3-1/2 acres of gardens and green space.

180,000 sq. ft. of the project is protected with Monolithic Membrane 6125 and 50,000 sq. ft. is utilizing the Garden Roof Assembly which allowed the hospital to create a truly healing and innovative space for its patients. The Garden Roof Assembly also helped LPCH to earn LEED® Platinum certification.
