Green Roof

These photos give you a glimpse of the energy-saving "green roof" that Highmark planted on a corner rooftop at its Fifth Avenue Place headquarters in downtown Pittsburgh.

This 22,000-square-foot roof features beds of some 25,000 plants, and these plantings will help to manage rainwater, insulate the building from heat and cold, reduce energy consumption — and beautify the city landscape.
