We are thrilled to have been working on a large commercial green roof project at the Centenary Quay redevelopment in Southampton for the last several weeks.
Centenary Quay is a brownfield site that had previously operated as a shipyard since 1876. An ambitious regeneration project has transformed the site over the past decade into a vibrant waterside community, delivering new affordable homes alongside new amenities, shops and services, along with maritime commercial space to acknowledge the site’s important shipbuilding heritage.
The latest phase of the project involved the installation of a total of 850m2 sedum roofing to comply with the Biodiversity Design Report for the Centenary Quay development. This includes specially selected grass and flower species, chosen for their ability to withstand windy coastal conditions. When established, these plants will provide shelter and forage to a range of invertebrates and birds.
This was a large project that required multi-discipline coordination, from the architects to the construction teams.
Please contact us if you have a project or installation you would like to talk to us about. We are always happy to discuss your plans with you without obligation and are experienced at large scale commercial projects as well as small domestic installs.
