Green Roof Systems
Eco Green Roof
SIG Design & Technology are working with Eco Green Roofs (EGR) to provide guaranteed green roof and blue roof systems. Partnering with Eco Green Roofs allows SIG to offer a full built up system which combines expertise on both the green roofing and waterproofing under one package.
Eco Green Roof System
Eco Green Roof provides guaranteed systems that replicate the natural growing environment for plants. Using a wide range of sedum and wildflower plant species they create lush, vibrant, bio-diverse environments that can transform both new and refurbishment projects.
A green roof has a core function in the development of the urban landscape and every system requires careful blending to ensure its environmental capacity is suited to its location and the demands that may be laid upon it. Designing bespoke systems to meet the client’s needs, Eco Green Roofs specialise in the supply and installation to ensure the sustainability of their green roofs.
The planting of Green Roof can be achieved using one of three methods; pre-grown mat, plug planting and self-vegetated
Plant choice should consider factors such as air pollution levels, location, structural limitations of the building and the level of maintenance required. The choice is also dependent upon what the client wants to achieve. If you have any bespoke requirements, please contact us and we can create a perfect green roof for you.
EGR Blue Roof System
SIG Design & Technology also offer optimal roofscape water management solutions with the EGR Blue Roof System. In the past, blue roofs were conceived as storage tanks for rainwater harvesting today they form part of SuDs best practice. A blue roof is designed to attenuate water, typically rainfall and release this water over a longer period of time. This eases the pressure on the drainage systems particularly in times of severe rainfall.
Blue Roofs are suitable for a wide range of building types from domestic to commercial. They place stormwater attenuation within the building footprint, making them ideal for urban environments where ground space is limited.
The blue roof system has been developed by EGR’s own inhouse expert and designed by Carl Harrop who has been a specialist in blue roof technology for over 15 years.
