River rock ballast has been installed around the perimeter of the green roof

River rock ballast has been installed around the perimeter of the green roof and is being held in place with metal up-stands. This is used as a method of access or walkway around the green roof for maintenance.

This is an example of a typical river rock ballasted drain sump.  The metal up-stands and ballast around the drain help to prevent the drain from becoming clogged by the organic material.

Contractors are putting the final touches on the green roof assembly by installing the last few pallets of growing medium and removing the plastic wrap from the pallets installed around the units.
