Designed by RR|A, Bowdoin College's first green roof has just been installed.

RR|A is excited to be a part of Bowdoin College's plan to be carbon neutral by 2020.  In addition to enhancing the view from the neighboring building, the green roof also reduces the urban "heat island" effect, extends the life of the roof, and absorbs rain water.
