Roof garden

A maker of roof gardens wanted evidence of their product’s environmental benefits.

With our support, they set up an experiment to collect data showing the environmental performance from a section of roof, data that the industry had never seen before. Demand for their product has now ‘gone through the roof’.

The outcome is an entrepreneurial ‘living roof’ specialist able to draw upon technology to provide evidence of the environmental and financial benefits from installing their product.

This has caught the attention of city planners many of whom are now more confident about the role that living roofs can play in future city regeneration projects.
