Roofmeadow provided landscape architectural and engineering services for this retrofit green roof. Roofmeadow designed a showcase the green roof for Hanover® Architectural Products, the industry leader in architectural pavers, at their headquarters in Hanover, PA.

With patio seating, seatwalls, and a stage area, employees are free to enjoy the amenity space at lunchtime and for events and presentations. Hanover also uses the newly-built rooftop as a tour ground for potential clients and partners.

Part of the design fun involved figuring out unintended uses for Hanover’s off the shelf and custom products. These innovative approaches enhance the diversity of products that Hanover already offers.

Roofmeadow-licensed Master Contractor G.R.A.S.S. installed the green roof this spring, placing each paver with precision. The project took six weeks to construct, with stacked walls, pedestal pavers, companion pavers, precast-concrete curbs, and a diversity of herbaceous perennials, shrubs, and trees.
