Geocomposites for green and blue roofs

Updated: Oct 25

Rooftop areas, including podium decks, provide valuable, usable space on a development and the modern approach is to use these spaces to benefit the wider development. These areas can be used to replace habitats which would otherwise be lost, to enhance biodiversity and provide important public amenity and green spaces in city centres.


Various geosynthetics can be used in such green roofs to capture and remove excess water as quickly as possible and/or to provide retention of water on the roof. This allows for efficient storm water management on the roof.
