Grand Rapids Green Roof Sprouts Atop Rockford Construction’s New HQs

In July of 2013, Rockford Construction installed a 3,300 square foot green roof on their new LEED headquarters in Grand Rapids, MI. Several local companies teamed up to make this project come to life.

Superior Groundcover, Inc, also based in Grand Rapids, MI, was brought in to supply our Express Blower truck installation of the green roof media for both the intensive planter area as well as the extensive and semi-intensive areas.

The rooftop patio includes a planter area, home to several Jack Pear trees, and an open space where sedum, a variety of perennials, and ornamental grasses create a natural park like setting for employees to meet and relax.┬áThe green roof is also enjoyed from Rockford’s glass meeting room which looks out over the patio area below.

If you are driving on I-196 just West of US-131, look to the South and you will catch a glimpse of the park in the sky!
