The Grass is Greener on a Kingerlee Site
The Alumasc Derbigum System provides a warm deck insulated covering, bio diverse planting medium and a seed mix with plug planting to provide the sedum vegetation. Due to the access constraints on this BREEAM project the team have procured a system to pump the roofing medium from large capacity tankers at ground level. The roof areas were then raked to an even thickness and planted instu rather than the more traditional sedum blanket.
This environmentally friendly project also incorporates photo voltaic panels, air source heat pumps and a rain water harvesting system.
The project will be completed for school occupation in September 2010.
