The installation has begun.

News from Charles Tapley and Geoffrey Brune on the progress on the new sloped* Green Roof for the College of Architecture at the University of Houston :

"Here it is folks, the opening pages of the real thing. The crews started in a light rain on Friday and were on the roof by 7:30 AM (April 14,2007) today and just leaving at 5:00 PM. Today the weather was dry, cool, and very windy. As you can see the metal surrounding the planting beds is well along and Tony (with Bellows) tells me they will be back tomorrow morning, Sunday.I will, too.
Celebrate! Chas"
