Green Roof - Water Harvesting

In the summer of 2011, The UA Plumbers Union: Local #1 of New York City purchased a building in Long Island City, Queens, with a goal to renovate the structure and make it the new home of the Union's Administration and Workforce Training Headquarters.

With an initial construction cost estimate of over $20 million, Local #1 retained Muller Bohlin Associates to assist the Union identify and secure alternative sources of funding that would not only help them complete their redevelopment goals but also create innovative oppotunities for use of the open roof space.

Local 1 retained Muller Bohlin Associates to assist with the implementation of a funding procurement program focused on sustainable building practices for the construction of their new facility. Muller Bohlin developed a funding plan, identified green/sustainable improvements and has successfully secured over $500,000 for the construction of a green roof system that will include solar thermal, a cistern stormwater harvesting system, grey water reuse functions, and an innovative urban agriculture medium, which will alleviate pressure from building runoff to the local streets.
