LOUISVILLE, KY. (WDRB) -- A downtown building still under construction is going green. Bernheim Forest horticulturalists and volunteers installed a living rooftop on the new eight-story Nucleus building on Market Street.
Workers planted flowers and tall grasses Thursday morning, which they say will help reduce radiant and reflective heat released into the environment. Every plant they choose is for a reason.
Dr. Mark Wourms, Bernheim Executive Director, explains, "On a roof, it's a hot dry environment, it's also a cold windy environment in the winter, so the plants have to be tough. But you know what? Louisville's got a great climate to grow green roofs, and it's one of the initiatives Bernheim is very proud to be involved with."
The Nucleus building is the University of Louisville's innovative building downtown.
