The 2013 Portland Ecoroof Symposium took place on Thursday, May 2nd. The event marked the 5th consecutive year for the BES 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 in the City of Portland.
The program for this year’s event was developed to reach developers, construction firms, and building design professionals. Presentation topics focused on ecoroof costs and benefits, LEED certification, stormwater management regulations, and low-maintenance no-irrigation design.
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 2011 and 2012 events as well.)
