commARCH Research Group conducted a study representative of commARCHs subscribers, to determine perceptions of vegetative roofs as the country moves out of the pandemic and begins to return to the "new normal" activities.

Much has been written about occupants' desiring a mix of outdoor and indoor space where they shop, eat, work and live as they became more aware of airborne illness transmittal rates. Vegetative roofs provide a solution to be considered for new and renovated spaces. 

As you review the findings, you will identify areas that are considered of higher value for owners/developers than architects and vice-versa.

Hopefully, these insights provide a positive impact on the use of vegetative roofs' discussion and usage moving forward.

While this subject was a planned 2021 editorial research project, commARCH appreciates Owens Cornings' decision to partner with the study and assist in its wider distribution.
