Type of works: supply of 7,100m² Bauder Extensive Green Roof System with Sedum Blanket

During the recent regeneration in and around Birmingham innovation has been a key factor, a theme optimised by the redevelopment of the Dunlop Tyres warehouse which has been transformed into 45,000m² of office space and a 6,000m² hotel.

Practical challenges such as the reduction of noise pollution and maximising the building’s lifespan were all met by the Bauder Total Green Roof System with an extensive landscaping of sedum.

The planting scheme provided instant coverage as the sedum was laid as pre-cultivated vegetation mats.

The entire solution provided a watertight installation in conjunction with a 20 year guarantee whilst making the structure both environmentally friendly and aesthetically pleasing.
