ABSTRACT
The market of green roofs construction in the north of Russia is poorly developed. The Republic of Karelia, Murmansk and Arkhangelsk regions have a great potential for developing such a technology. The article dwells upon green roofs construction in severe climatic conditions. A brief literature review about the researched topic is provided. The article presents a technology of green roofs construction in temperatures ranging from -30оС to +30оС. The main stages are described. The pre-design stage includes analyzing technical characteristics of a given roof (the permissible load of the building, roof inclination, sunlight analysis, studying the roof’s susceptibility to winds, the wind diagram). The project stage implies determining a green roof type which is possible to be constructed on this or that roof. A landscape design project of a green roof is created depending on its type, also the main structure of a green roof is decided upon, considering the given roof. All the documents necessary for further implementation of the project are being collected. The third stage includes project implementation, the green roof is constructed, landscape design is created, construction design supervision is carried out to control the process. Standard construction of a green roof is described in the article, and also construction materials that will be able to endure severe climatic conditions of northern parts of Russia are selected. Recommendations are given for taking care of a green roof in the north of Russia in order to prolong its working lifespan.

Keywords: green roof; the technology of green roof construction in the north of Russia; green roof design stages; recommendations for care and use.
