Roofing Evaluation Module
The Roofing Evaluation Module (REM) simulates a consistent indoor environment and gathers real-time performance data. Each REM is topped by a different green roof system sponsored by industry partners. A reference REM demonstrates a conventional flat roof. The REMs provide the same performance evaluations as the Green Roof Research Facility.
Because extensive green roofs evolved in the climates of western Europe, understanding
how they perform in the Pacific Northwest is essential to overcoming barriers to implementation. Given their small modular construction, future REMs could provide climate-specific performance data in different locations, like the B.C. interior and Vancouver Island.
- Comparative performance data
- Quantitative 3rd-party verification
- Increase market confidence
- Competitive market edge
- Optimized return on investment
To date, nine REMs have been installed, calibrated and monitored, and performance reports delivered. We offer this flyer, “Introducing REM-05” for more information.
