AD Greenroof, LLC

Problem: Clean water is the fuel that supports industry around the globe and fresh water is available in only very limited supplies.  In fact, only about 2.5% of all the water on earth is fresh water.  Still, it’s all we have to support humans, other animals, plants and industry around the world.

Challenge:  To conserve our fresh water resources. 

Solution:  One way to meet the challenge is to reduce the volume of contaminated water that enters public lakes and streams as well as treatment systems.  That’s a win-win for utilities, the public in general and the environment. That’s the solution AD Greenroof provides.

Owner/Founder
Ms. Angie Durhman
My Successes

Projects: AD Greenroof currently has projects in various phases of design and completion across the country.  In the Twin Cities, there are a couple of note:  Providing maintenance oversight for the Target Center and working with the City of St. Paul to calculate the benefits of vegetated roofs; both sizeable projects that have made a big impact on urban water run-off.

The Future:  Ms. Durhman has recently expanded her business to include GREENFORMATION™ which is a maintenance oversight program for building owners and contractors who need to maintain vegetated roofs.

What's Great About My Mentor?
