StormCap pre vegetated roof system

High performing StormCap system is wind tested and retains up to 2.6″ of rainfall for superior stormwater management.

State-of-the-art building technology reduces Johnson & Johnson HQ footprint

One of the main reasons the green roof was included in the design of the building was to reduce the stormwater runoff from the roof and protect local watersheds. The vegetated roof also helps increase the lifespan of the roofing membrane and keeps the building, and surrounding area, cooler on hot days.

Johnson & Johnson’s World HQ has seven vegetated roofs using the StormCapTM vegetated system and has been awarded the first LEED Existing Buildings Gold Certification in New Jersey. The high performing, low maintenance StormCapTM system was selected for its superior water retention-to-weight ratio. Innovative and easy to install, this system uses quality pre-grown mats, engineered growing medium and high performing base layers such as Urbanscape®’s Needled Mineral Hydro Blanket which has superior water retention characteristics holding 90% of its volume in water. The green roof has no permanent irrigation.

The sedum blanket is delivered with 85% foliar coverage and provides an instant green cover. It consists of 10-12 species of sedum specially selected for their heat/drought tolerance and year-round visual interests.  The sedum blanket helps reduce water

Additional benefits for the employees

Research shows there are additional benefits for the employees and company itself, as views of nature promotes positive levels of well-being among employees and keeps employee performance at optimal levels. Good for the building, good for the environment and good for the employees and community. Win-win-win.
