If all roofs are to be flat, then set the Global "pitch" setting in the "Build Roof Dialog" to "zero inches" or something virtually flat like "1/16" in 12 or 1/4" in 12" ("Flat Roof systems still need to drain to their eaves don't they?). If you wish a Parapet wall around your "roof", then you create a second floor to emulate the roof, setting the "Ceiling Height for the second floor the intended height of the parapet wall. Check "No Ceiling or Roof over this room" for the "Roof Room", setting the "Floor Material" of the second-floor room to some appropriate material setting like "Asphalt" from the "Roadways" material choices. You are trying to emulate a flat roof, you say what it is to communicate your intentions to other building professionals.
