A green roof system from Alumasc has created a roof top retreat for residents of a stunning new development of flats and leisure facilities in Sunderland. Designing a roof garden directly over the car park structural concrete roof deck, presented a challenge for the architect, who worked closely alongside Alumasc’s Technical Support Team to create the ideal solution for the project. Hydrotech MM6125 structural waterproofing, also from Alumasc, was installed. Hydrotech is the first choice for BBA Approved waterproofing on inverted green roofs and hard landscaped podium structures in new build applications. It allows fast and simple installation, even over complex roof details. Alumasc green roofs offer ecological and amenity benefits, providing a natural habitat for plants and wildlife, while helping to reduce air and noise pollution, cutting carbon emissions and assisting with rainwater retention and attenuation.
