Take a Tour of Reading HealthPlex Green Roof

Green Roof Tour

Monday, August 27th from 3:30-6:30pm

West Reading, PA

Join the US Green Building Council Central PA for a seminar & tour of the 88,000 square foot green roof at Reading HealthPlex on August 27th.  At the time it was completed in 2016, this green roof was the largest in Pennsylvania and the third largest at a health care facility in the U.S., comprising over 72 percent of the building’s overall footprint. 

In addition to reducing heating/cooling costs in the building and improving stormwater management, the green roof provides patients and their families with the calming benefits of nature that can enhance patient recovery time and clinical outcomes. 

The event will be followed by an hour of networking, drinks and appetizers at a nearby bar (exact location TBD).
