Getting a roof!!!

The reason we are using concrete beams is that the green roof  will be very heavy, and the arhitects recommended making it so strong that i don’t have to worry about how much earth i put on top, or whether i get 50 people up there for a bbq. it is not eco in terms of materials used, but the energy savings because of the green roof, will eventually cancel out the energy used in the construction of the beams, and the steel used in the beams is normal  rebar – is that usually recycled metal? in the shop they told me yes, but they just like to keep the hippy happy.
