The Trident Park Energy From Waste Building was designed to provide electricity from the things people throw away. In keeping with this the company wanted to install a sedum green roof on the top of the building. Not only does this provide an aesthetic finish, it also reduces energy output by reducing heating and air conditioning requirements.
Sedum green roofs reduce run off and help to mitigate the risk of flooding in the area, whilst contributing to the fight against global warming by making use of land lost by development. The building features a standing seam roof, and therefore our specialist standing seam bio-drain was used to ensure the substrate below the sedum is allowed to drain, yet retains enough water to grow in dry weather.
