PNC BANK GREEN WALL G_space completes the largest Green Living Wall in North America. The wall was installed in record time (4 days ahead of schedule) for PNC Bank in time for the G-20 summit in Pittsburgh.
The G_space team was responsible for installing a CTEM waterproofing system as well as the 602 Green wall panels consisting of Ferns, Sedums, Ajuga, Carex, and other native plants.
Roughly the size of two tennis courts, this soil based Green wall system contributes to the cooling of the building and Urban plaza, sound absorption, and offsets the carbon footprint of approximately 600 people each day.
The wall system is a product of GLT, Green Living Technologies and designed in partnership with g_space / Philly Green Wall
