About Us Mission [highlight1]Research[/highlight1] History Stewardship
Advanced Green Architecture (AGA) is a green roof design and consulting company located in Grand Rapids, MI. AGA designed and developed the patent-pending Advanced Green Roof system through applied knowledge of scientific, green roof research.
Research is a core value at Advanced Green Architecture. We believe that research leads to the development of new ideas and better ways of doing things. AGA was created by landscape architects who looked to improve the short comings of existing green roof systems and wanted to create a better solution for high performance green roofs. To accomplish this, the principal members of AGA pursued advanced degrees in green roof research from Michigan State University. Data that was collected through this scientific research process resulted in the development of the revolutionary Advanced Green Roof system.
Our research has been recognized by the American Society of Landscape Architects (ASLA), Green Roofs for Healthy Cities (GRHC), Council of Educators in Landscape Architecture (CELA) as well as the United States Environmental Protection Agency (USEPA) for creating sustainable solutions to environmental problems in urban areas. AGA is continually researching new product ideas and techniques to improve the green roofs we provide to our customers.
