The Green Roof. The Javits Center’s state-of-the-art, nearly 7-acre green roof can absorb up to seven million gallons of storm water run-off annually, while reducing heat gain throughout the building.

As a result of all of our sustainable initiatives, the facility's annual energy consumption has been reduced by 26%. One of the most impressive green roofs in the country is the one on top of City Hall in Chicago. Part of the impressiveness comes from the fact that the building is over years old and was not designed specifically to allow for the additional weight of a green roof.

Our living roof is more than beautiful—it's the heart of the Academy. Weather stations on the roof monitor wind, rain, and changes in temperature to help inform the building's automated systems and skylights, keeping rainforest temps just right, the interior piazza cool and comfortable, and natural light streaming to the exhibits below.

The case study results show that the proposed eco‐innovative alternative can reduce more than 20 % of energy consumption of traditional roof. It is thus concluded that the generic eco‐innovation model provides a promising tool for engineers/architect in achieving more sustainable construction during the design by: 5.
