Second biggest Green roof in North America nearing completion

With the completion next spring of the new convention centre in Vancouver’s Coal Harbour, there will be a few blocks of new parkland added to the city — but they’re strictly for the birds and the bees.

The expansion project, west of the current convention centre, is being topped off with a 2.4-hectare green — or “living” — roof that covers the flat, sloping segmented roof, and will be the second-largest in North America, next to a Michigan Ford plant covered with grass patches.
