Bauder has installed approximately 4,800m2 of high quality, low maintenance sedum blanket for a Waitrose superstore in Bagshot, Surrey. The client wanted the new development to replace the green space lost to the building’s footprint and minimise its overall impact on the surrounding landscape.
The new roof features Bauder’s premium root resistant bituminous waterproofing system, BTGRS, which includes a highly efficient 120mm FA-TE insulation to satisfy the required 0.18 U-value. The pre-cultivated sedum blanket was craned into position onto the roof and then laid in a very similar way to turf to produce a continuous sea of green vegetation on the large waved shape roof.
Jeffrey Thornton of Midas Group stated, “Bauder delivered high quality, professional support throughout the project, and Span Roofing demonstrated exception levels of workmanship in the installation of the green roof. This eco-friendly building is undeniably a benchmark for sustainable construction and its roof has played an integral part in achieving this.”
