Meliora Design conducted detailed rainfall and stormwater flow monitoring to evaluate the performance of stormwater quality and quantity measures at the Kresge Foundation Headquarters in Troy, MI. This effort was undertaken to verify the performance of the facility as one of the first LEED Platinum facilities. Findings from this investigation confirmed that the various green infrastructure measures resulted in over 1-inch volume capture and exceeded the design goals of the project. The stormwater measures included a green roof, cistern, meadow creation, porous pavements, and vegetated swales.
