American Life Building - Green Roof

project at a glance

Louisville's largest privately owned vegetative roof is located at the American Life corporate headquarters, atop their Mies van der Rohe designed building downtown.

This 17,000 square feet project included the installation of mostly native species sedum mats with three test beds provided by Bernheim Arboretum and Research Forest.  The green roof helps to reduce the energy costs for the owner while reducing the storm water runoff.

The green roof is part of the organization's overall plan to reduce the carbon footprint of this iconic Louisville landmark.  Turner managed the interior fit-outs and renovations of multiple floors within the facility, as well as the original construction of the building 36 years ago.
