September 14th, 2012. Stay on top of the greenroof world with our weekly review of what’s new: hot topics, the project of the week, upcoming events, latest newslinks, green roof jobs, advertiser press releases and more. Music provided by Dan-O at http://www.danosongs.com and Apple, Inc. The LEED Gold certified Nashville Music City Center (MCC) is a 1,200,000 square foot convention center in the SoBro (South of Broadway) district in Nashville. Five stories high, the wavy roof has three independent greenroof sections which mimic the rolling hills of Tennessee. The iconic greenroof design represents the frets and body of a guitar—including 845 solar panels incorporated into the guitar body itself. A 360,000 gallon rainwater collection tank stores rainwater from the roof which is used to irrigate outdoor landscaping and flush the hundreds of toilets in the building. The Music City Center is the recipient of the Green Roofs for Healthy Cities 2014 Green Roof Special Recognition Award. The co-recipients are Roofmeadow, who designed the greenroof, provided construction oversight, and oversees maintenance; Greenrise Technologies, who constructed the greenroof and also conducts greenroof maintenance; and tvsdesign, lead architect, who conceived the greenroof project and laid out the signature green diamond pattern. Greenrise Technologies says “This project represents the ultimate fusion of aesthetics and engineered performance.” Designed for stormwater retention and urban heat island reduction, the greenroof can handle a 2.6-million-gallon stormwater offset. Protected by a waterproofing membrane from Sika Sarnafil with Bonar’s Enkadrain®/W 3601 drainage, the shallow under 3” deep rooflite® Extensive MCL substrate blended by Garick is covered with pre-vegetated sedum mats from Sempergreen. The undulating surfaces with pitches ranging from 16 – 25% required slope stabilization of the media, and the Anti-Slip System Type N with net and sills from Optigreen® was used.
