A green roof, dry well and bioretention facility was installed as part of a major addition to the Vedanta Society chapel.
Located on a major historic street in Providence on College Hill, the design of the Vedanta Society is intended to respect its institutional and residential neighbors and create a street edge compatible with the walkable community. An eye to energy efficiency and cost effective yet durable materials was an important factor of the Vedanta Society’s design. Features such as a green area with sunscreens and deep overhangs provide a tranquil garden area within a very tight urban site, and also reduce cooling loads in the summer. A dry well is used to mitigate excess stormwater and planting areas mitigate 50% of stormwater.
