The Qualico Centre's Green Roof

The Qualico Family Centre is topped with a green roof planted with local grasses that offers an elevated extension of the surrounding forest. This unique feature creates a true connection with the landscape and backdrop of Assiniboine Park, while creating unique energy efficiencies.

Green Roof

Environmental Benefits:

  • Additional insulative value, protection from solar gain in the summer, and heat loss in Winnipeg’s long extreme winters.
  • The mass of the soil and plant material and the integrated tray system work together to retain rainwater before slowly releasing whatever water the plants do not absorb back into the city system.
  • Green roofs help to mitigate the urban “heat island effect” by minimizing heat absorption at the roof surface, and effectively transpiring water back into the local environment.
  • The protective layer formed by the green roof medium also helps to protect the roof membrane and effectively extend its life
