When properly tailored to suit the building, solar energy systems on roofs have huge potential. Today’s systems are perfectly designed for minimum installation effort and maximum yield from operation.

Amager Resource Centre Copenhagen, Denmark

In Copenhagen, an audacious vision for the design of a waste-to-energy plant has become a reality in a highly impressive manner. Since opening at the start of October 2019, the impressive Amager Resource Centre, with its approx. 16,000 m² of roof area, has provided any amount of skiing fun with its four ski lifts. It has various trails for hikers and steps for those who want to walk up the Amager Bakke (mountain) or Copenhill, as the 87 m high “new local mountain” is called.

Soho House Amsterdam with “Stormwater Management Roof”

Relaxing on a lounger, bathing in the pool with a 360° panoramic view of Amsterdam or simply having a cool drink at the bar? The exclusive design of the roof garden at Soho House Amsterdam provides 900 m² of luxury at a lofty height and in addition to that, makes a valuable contribution to ecology and sustainability.

Residential development Noltemeyer Hoefe in Braunschweig

In matters of ecology and sustainability, designers and architects are likely to pay increasing attention to roofs. The huge potential here is illustrated by the residential development, Noltemeyer Hoefe in Braunschweig/Germany , with its 5,780 m² of green areas, terraces, pathways and driveways, where cars are parked out of sight in the underground garage.

The 5-star luxury GD Victoria Hotel by the Grupo Fedola on the Costa Adeje is in one of the most prestigious tourist regions of Tenerife and is spectacularly impressive with its 1000 m² of steep pitched green roof – among the steepest of its kind in Europe. Colourful, droughtresistant flowering plants rise up on both sides of the building and along all seven storeys.

The new London Green Roof Report 2019 recently published reveals the remarkable growth in green roof space installed in London over the past 10 years. The report is published by the European Federation of Green Roof and Green Wall Associations (EFB) and Livingroofs.org on behalf of the Greater London Authority. Shirley Rodrigues, London’s Deputy Mayor for the Environment launched the report on 10th April 2019 at the EUGIC conference at Here East in the Queen Elizabeth Park.

Maintenance Guardrail Fallnet® ASG

A workplace at height on a roof should provide not only a wonderful view but above all safety, as no-one should be able to fall off it.

Everything is fine during the construction phase of the building as the scaffolding provides protection for all works. However, once the scaffolding has been removed, proper fall protection measures have to be implemented for all subsequent works on the roof. Every flat roof has to be accessed for maintenance purposes, even if the roof is only covered in gravel.
