The 2014 Portland Ecoroof Symposium took place on Wednesday, May 21st. The event marked the 6th consecutive year for the Environmental Services Ecoroof Program’s major outreach event. This year’s event continued the ongoing dialogue between the City of Portland, municipal and non-profit partners, and the private sector, focusing on the business case for ecoroof development.
The program for this year’s event was developed to reach developers, construction firms, and building design professionals. Presentation topics focused on ecoroof design, cost benefit analysis, acoustical research, and case studies of premier Portland ecoroofs.
All presentations are now online and available for viewing. They can be accessed individually on the event web page or you can check out the entire program by accessing the event YouTube page. (You can find all the videos from our 2012 and 2013 events as well.)
