VSAG talks with our green roof professional, Kim Fritzke

In our quest to continually strive for sustainability, we have the good fortune of meeting some really interesting, knowledgeable industry folks who are willing to share their expertise and work collectively towards a better future for us all.

With that, we recently met Kim Fritzke, Marketing Director at Gordon Contractors and were intrigued by her knowledge and passion for green roofing. As Gordon Contractors have reportedly installed more green roofs in the greater DC-metropolitan area than any other contractor and are currently working on a 5,000 sq. ft. green roof installation at DC’s National Museum of African American History and Culture, Kim proved a great resource.

Gordon Contractors Inc., Capitol Heights, Md., was asked to perform the green roof system installation, including roof membranes and waterproofing for the project.
