Roche Health Center design strategies

It was thrilling to see how the "passive design" strategies for ventilation and shading had worked. The building was much more comfortable and better ventilated than other buildings around.

We also achieved our goal of building a "quiet" roof. Most metal roofs in the region are so loud during a rain that people have to leave the building. Our layered roof system was extremely quiet and comfortable in the strongest of downpours.
