  • At the time of its completion in Fall 2006, the 10000 sq.ft. extensive Bronx County Courthouse greenroof was the only the second greenroof atop a municipal building in the country. It was also the first greenroof on a building managed by the New York City Department of Citywide Administrative Services, which manages 53 public buildings in the City. The roof was one of 14 greenroofs funded through the Bronx Borough President's Bronx Initative for Energy and the Environment. It was designed by Green Roof Service, LLC and installed by Tecta America's Patti and Magco, Inc divisions. Green Roof Service was also engaged to provide two-year monitoring of stormwater retention and temperature.
