Meet ZinCo at “FUTURESCAPE 2018” taking place on Tuesday 20th of November 2018 at Sandown Park Racecourse, Esher, Surrey.
The ZinCo system build-up “Roof Garden” provides a permanently reliable base for the permanent establishment of lawns, perennials and shrubs, and even trees on roof areas. The drainage element Floradrain® FD 60 neo may even be concreted as a sub-structure for driveways or for foundations for play equipment, railings, pergolas and other structures.
From the paved surface of the underground garage to the wave-shaped glass roof, the Elbphilharmonie is filled with special ideas that mark it out as an architectural masterpiece. Approx. 4300 m² of paving were installed on top of the underground park thanks to the ZinCo system build-up “Driveway with Elastodrain®”.

The new Stavros Niarchos Foundation Cultural Center (SNFCC) is a symbol of education, culture and sustainability, both for the people of Greece and in the wider international context. This project was awarded LEED Platinum Certification and is the largest construction project in recent Greek history. The buildings house the Greek National Opera (NGO) and the National Library of Greece (NLG) and are literally embedded in the open park that stretches over an area of 17 hectares.

To provide architects and planners with state-of-the-art planning tools and help to optimise their workflow, ZinCo build-up systems and products are now available as BIM data files in different formats for free download. Our BIM library will be constantly extended.

The ZinCo system build-up ”Urban Climate Roof” is ”i-NOVO Awards Winner 2017” in the “Eco” class.
The roof garden supplies the kitchen with tasty ingredients and at the same time is part of the educational programme at “Le Cordon Bleu”. In addition, the roof is home to four bee hives and an insect hotel. A wonderful example of urban farming, because rooftops with the right ZinCo green roof are ideal for use as a cultivation area.
Video about the roof garden at DÜRR DENTAL AG in Bietigheim-Bissingen. The green roof – established with ZinCo green roof technology – is adjacent to the company restaurant, thus offering great potential for a relaxing lunch break.
The former elevated rail track in Manhattan has become the ultimate reference for roof landscapes in an urban setting. The High Line is now a designated “must see” attraction in many tourist guides of New York.
ZinCo provides tried and tested solutions that do not require the roof membrane to be penetrated, thereby extending the life of the roof considerably.
