Green roofs in ecotect?

Naicin | Posted in General Questions on

How would you get Ecotect to calculate a green roof? Would you need to work out the R-values of the green roof and model a generic object and give it a custom material with said value?

I’m new to Ecotect so sorry if this has been covered.
