Linda Tool & Die Corporation


Highview Creations helped with the installation of this 12,000 square foot intensive green roof at the Linda Tool & Die Corporation in Red Hook, Brooklyn. Soon after the project’s completion, students and faculty from Columbia University studied the green roof’s ecological productivity and thermal properties. The project utilizes a customized ultra-lightweight growing media at varying depths, and exhibits only native plantings with the exception of a small garden for building tenants to grow fruits, vegetables, and herbs. The owner noticed a 30% decrease in the building’s annual heating and cooling costs since the green roof was installed.
