Want to learn about exciting green roof technology? Join PHS for a tour of the PECO building in Center City.  Totaling over 45,000 square feet, it is the largest green roof on an existing building in Philadelphia. Says Denis O’Brien, the company’s president and CEO, “As a major business in the region, being environmentally responsible is not just a nice thing to do—it’s the right thing to do.”  Space is limited to 25 people per tour, and pre-registration at least two days before the tour is required. Tour participants must be at least 18 years of age.  Fee: $5 PHS members, $10 non-members.
