The University of Notre Dame revealed it has installed the largest roof greenscape in Indiana on the roof of the Joyce Center.
The green roof is 79,096 square feet, or nearly 2 acres.
The university says the green roof is part of its strategy to cut its carbon footprint in half by 2030.
There are five green rooftops at Notre Dame. The others are on the top of the Morris Inn, Corbett Family Hall, Duncan Student Center and O’Neill Hall.
“The University is firmly committed to being a good steward of our natural resources,” said John Affleck-Graves, executive vice president. “In addition to saving energy and improving stormwater runoff, this green roof will also contribute to the natural beauty of our campus while replicating the design of our quads.”
The green roof was designed and grown by LiveRoof of Spring Lake, Michigan.
Midland Engineering of South Bend performed the installation.
