The iHotel installed a green roof this fall, becoming the latest campus building to join the green trend. 

“The green roof will help reduce energy consumption and provide “a very nice aesthetic” for hotel guests with views out their upper-story windows, as opposed to a plain black roof,” The News-Gazette reported. 

Peter Fox, principal of Resarch Park’s private developer Fox/Atkins, said that more green roofs could be installed in other Research Park buildings. 

“We’d like to do every roof we own on Fox Drive and in the park,” he said.
