St. Elizabeth Hospital in Appleton, Wis., is putting the final touches on its third planted roof.
Contractors are wrapping up the installation of a 6,110 square-foot system atop the new Fremont Tower. The first 4,125-square-foot green roof was installed on the Heart, Vascular and Lung Center building in 2009. The hospital also installed a 3,000-square-foot vegetated roof on its Cancer Center in 2011.
“When we planned the new building, we wanted to create a restful place for patients to heal and a great place for associates to work. We also wanted the building to be sustainable, so we deliberately planned and constructed the building in this way,” said Iqbal Mian, a Lean Leader who focuses on sustainability efforts at Ministry Health Care.
The new rooftop garden was designed by Hamill Green Abrahamson, the architects for the project, and will be installed by Craft Building Services, LLC. Bachman’s Inc. of Minneapolis, Minnesota custom grew the green roof system as the regional LiveRoof licensee.
