Bridging Trades - Safe Section ChangeoverEven the best laid Green Roof plans can go wrong if the underlying roof is not prepared to meet demands. Therefore, the International Green Roof Association (IGRA) has developed a new guideline, "Bridging Trades – Safe Section Changeover: Roofing Technology – Vegetation Technology". The content of the IGRA Guidelines is made up of two main modules:

  • A checklist that provides a clear and concise overview of current examination criteria for the roof and vegetation technology interface.
  • A commentary volume that provides further explanations and graphic material of all technical terms and questions in the checklist.

The guideline is not only designed for Green Roof installers and roofers. It is also designed for architects, planners and developers who can take advantage of the practical and legal references.
