Value Engineering and Installation of a Green Roof and Waterproofing System for the Grand River Station

Pioneer Roofing actively supports the vegetative roofing sector of the market. Taking great pride in supplying green roofing systems, we perform all duties required to complete these types of assignments in-house. As an example of this service, the 13,500 square ft. intensive green roof was installed by Pioneer Roofing at Grand River Station in La Crosse, Wisconsin. Gorman and Company contracted our company for this project. The roof was installed above a CCW 500R hot-applied waterproofing system.

Our company supplied various components, including:

  • CCW root barrier
  • Colbond 3611R drainage composite
  • ERO-TEX J-Drain GRS50 drainage board
  • Pioneer Green Engineered Media
  • Custom fabricated green roof edging
  • Wausau Tile® pavers on pedestals
  • Ornamental ronat granite paths

This intensive green roof also featured a children's play area and deck. For this particular job, we sub-contracted 2 roofing components: the fully automated irrigation system and the deck build-out.

Pioneer Roofing was able to install the intensive green roof, pictured above, at Grand River Station within approximately 26 days of our initial involvement on this project. Contracts were awarded in the amount of $414,580 from Gorman and Company.
