FDIC Building

The FDIC Building’s green roof is one of the first completed federal green roofs in the Washington D.C. metro area, finished on July 15, 2005. This greenroof was designed to maximize storm water retention, thereby protecting area rivers from rainwater runoff. This green roof allowed the developers to offset very high onsite storm water management fees assessed by the county.  The project took 15 days, and due to extremely challenging construction logistics, required hoisting the soil, gravel and other materials onto the 8th floor roof of the South Tower, then lowering it to the 6th floor roof of the building annex, then up again to the 7th floor annex roof for installation.
