Urban Farming in Toronto

“Fresh ingredients taste better” is the guiding principle of the farm to table movement and nothing could be more natural than using your own roof for growing herbs, vegetables or even hops. The Avling Kitchen and Brewery in Toronto has proven this with their 400 m² roof garden that supplies all kinds of ingredients for their own brewery and restaurant.

  • Green roofs in the city

The huge mixed-use development at Wimbledon Grounds including vast 15,967 sqm area of “blue” roofs and “blue” podiums is one of the largest blue roofing projects in the UK. The key feature of these blue/green roofs is the ZinCo system build-up “Stormwater Management Roof” which can not only store large volumes of rainwater and release them again over predetermined periods but also reduces the urban heat island effect by the huge amount of greened areas.
Wimbledon Grounds is a mixed-use regeneration masterplan with a high profile residential development. Within the residential area 14.000 sqm of Blue Roofs have been installed. The ZinCo stormwater management system combines the benefits of green roofs or trafficable areas with an efficient flood prevention tool.
  • Roof garden with lawn and trees
  • Robafix®

Trees are increasingly used as an architectural design feature in the landscaping of roofs and podium decks. The selection of suitable tree species, adequate roof substrate and, above all, the local site conditions with regard to wind pressure and wind suction are essential. Steel grids are often used to anchor trees on rooftops by securing the root balls to the grid with tension straps. However, the sharp edges of these steel grids can damage the waterproofing. This can be avoided by using the new ZinCo Robafix® tree anchorage system.
