Silva Cell Installation: Medical Mart & Convention Center Cleveland, Ohio

Last week we attended a Silva Cell green roof installation at the Medical Mart and Convention Center in Cleveland, OH.

This project was designed by URS Corp. and Gustafson Guthrie Nichol, and installed by Independence Excavating.

There are two main areas of Silva Cells on the site. These pictures show the first area, which is part of a green space/festival space built over structure.

There will be trees in long planters at the borders of the space with intermittently placed concrete pads between for displays, etc.  The majority of those pads are supported by Silva Cells in order for the trees to share soil volume in the planters.

The second Silva Cell area is across the street to the south and is part of the green space/festival being constructed over the top of the convention center. There the Silva Cells will be used to provide soil volume to the street trees along the drives at on the east and west sides of the space.

Both phases of the installation are on structure.

All in all, about 70 trees will be planted on the site.
