Burns and Scalo- Class Field Trip

In March, our Sustainability class went on a field trip to Burns and Scalo. The roofing company specializes in solar and green roofs, as well as daylighting and traditional roofing. After a presentation on the company and their solar roofing services, the class had the opportunity to visit their own solar roof at their warehouse facility. The roof contains three different energy producing PV (photovoltaic) technologies and five different vegetative green roof systems. The roof also has other energy efficient products including daylighting and reflective roof membranes. Daylighting provides the warehouse enough natural light to keep all lighting fixtures off during the day. The facility is a living area for universities and professionals to study sustainability and was a great learning experience for the class.
