Rooftop areas, including podium decks, provide valuable, useable space on a development. A professional specialist installer is required with knowledge and experience in working with green roof systems.
The modern approach is to use these spaces to significantly benefit the wider development. They can be used to replace habitats which would otherwise be lost, enhance biodiversity and provide important public amenity and greenery in city centres. A green roof can be utilised at podium and roof level, and can be part of a good SuDs design by providing temporary storage and controlled discharge of storm water when combined with a blue roof. Green roof systems therefore contribute significantly towards achieving BREEAM and LEED sustainability points.
ABG specialise in the design and manufacture of green roof systems, and partner with Geogreen to install and maintain. Whether you need a subsurface drainage layer on a podium deck where the requirement is to move excess water to the outlets as quickly as possible, or an attenuation layer, often referred to as a reservoir board, where there is a requirement to maximise water storage to support vegetation layers Geogreen can provide the solution.
Our service extends to the supply and installation of growing medias suitable for sedum, biodiverse and intensive roof gardens, aluminium upstands and vegetation layers, including pre-grown mats and plug plants.

Extensive Green Roof
Extensive Green Roofs, often referred to as sedum or wildflower roofs, are the best known type of green roof and are relatively self-sufficient and low maintenance. Extensive Green Roofs contribute towards improving air quality, reduce the visual impact of the roof and assist in reducing rain water run-off as well as contributing to enhancing the acoustic and thermal properties of the roof.
Intensive Green Roofs
Intensive Green Roofs, often referred to as roof gardens, may be landscaped to include trees, lawns, flower beds and paved areas. With an intensive roof the only real limit to its scope is the weight of the system and the structure necessary to support it. Geogreens experience means we can deliver the Architects vision to create additional usable space in modern urban developments.
