Dr Sarah Milliken, Sustainable Landscapes Research Group, University of Greenwich

Dr Sarah Milliken is a landscape architect and Research Assistant in the Sustainable Landscapes Research Group and the Green Roofs and Living Walls Centre at the University of Greenwich. She originally trained as an archaeologist, and has taught at various universities in the UK, Ireland and Italy. A keen interest in environmental issues, and a desire to be able actively to address them, recently led her to undertake postgraduate qualifications in landscape architecture and urban sustainability. Her research interests include the design of decision support tools for ecological restoration, the role of temporary urbanism in contemporary placemaking, and how the economic and non-monetary evaluation of ecosystem services can be integrated into the discourse and praxis of urban planning and design.

  8. Cost Benefit Analysis • initial costs • maintenance costs •

    disposal costs • increase of property value • increased building envelope longevity • energy demand reduction for heating and air conditioning • socioeconomic benefits from air quality improvement and carbon reduction (habitat creation, aesthetic impact, UHI mitigation)
