How does weight impact installation costs?
Traditional green roofs usually involve detailed planning, tons of soil, lots of installation time and horticultural expertise… in other words, plenty of money.
With Urbanscape there are no complicated drainage systems or expensive roof preparations to install. Each element from the mineral wool growing layer to the root barrier membrane is light and easy to handle and no specialist knowledge is required to install it.
This means installation is effortless and efficient. When Urbanscape was installed on a 500 m2 residential complex in Germany, for example, it took just a day’s work of standard installation team to complete the entire system. That’s half the time it would have taken to install a traditional green roof.
