Walmart Partners With Portland State University Scientists To Study Green Roofs

October 28, 2013: 12:00 AM EST
Walmart partnered with Portland State University in Oregon to conduct research into the use of green roofs. As part of the research collaboration deal, researchers from the university’s Green Building Research Lab will collect data from the largest green roof in Portland which is on a Walmart store. Researchers also plan to install sensors and a weather station on the green roof being placed on Walmart’s Hayden Meadows store. Walmart’s biggest green roof, which is located in Chicago, is also being studied. Results of the two studies will be compared to analyze green roof performance in varying climate conditions.
