5-Boro Maintenance Facility
The 5-Boro Maintenance Facility is a 29,000 square foot greenroof at Randall’s Island Park atop the 5-Boro Shops Administrative building that uses Gaiasoil at certain points on the roof as its ultra-lightweight growing medium.
The green roof atop the Randall?s Island 5-Borough Administrative Building serves as a working laboratory for green roof design and construction, providing knowledge to the rest of the agency and other groups while at the same time conserving and giving back to the City of New York. Thus, the Administration Building roof serves as an experimental station in which the performance of many different systems can be monitored and compared.
The greenroof at Five Boro Maintenance Facility is truly at the forefront of green roof technology with some of the most innovative systems available.
