As of July 9, 2018 Portland’s new Central City zoning code will require all new buildings of 20,000 sf or more to install ecoroofs. After 22 years, since the first ecoroof was installed on a Portland residential garage, the city has enacted one of the most comprehensive Ecoroof (Greenroof) mandates in the United States. This was no easy decision, yet after many years and the construction of more than 600 ecoroofs the city had the experience and confidence to pursue such a requirement. Tom Liptan, FASLA, Green Infrastructure Consultant and former Portland Ecoroof Program Technical Manager will discuss ecoroofs in detail beginning with a look at some of Portland’s first ecoroofs and concluding with a discussion on innovative ecoroof strategies.
