Green Roof

Morris Inn green roof / Matt CashoreThe green roof on the newly-renovated Morris Inn, which is built into a sealed reservoir on top of the building, helps to absorb rainwater, insulate the building, and lower air conditioning costs by absorbing extra heat. Notre Dame is seeking LEED Silver certification for the Morris Inn renovation, an indicator of the building's outstanding sustainability and energy-efficiency.
