Clayton Rugh, general manager and technical director, Xero Flor America, says the area’s average annual rainfall is about 45-50 inches, and the new roof will help manage stormwater runoff by more than 150,000 gallons annually.

The new roof features 2 1/2 inches in depth and weighs 10 to 11 pounds per square foot when saturated with rainwater.

New York Green Roofs, a partner, installed a 650-square-foot customized semi-intensive green roof on a separate roof section on a lower addition of the building. That building will be used as The Point’s outdoor environmental classroom.
