BSG was delighted to be invited to talk about our green roof experience at the recent Greenbuild Expo 2011.
The presentation by Guy Miller focused on two flagship projects. The first of these was the complex of roofs on the major Woolwich Arsenal development in east London, with brownfield habitats for invertebrates and a species-rich meadow. The second project was the large species-rich calcareous grassland roof on the Derbyshire Ecocentre, near Wirksworth.
Guy discussed the key principals of habitat creation on a roof and reviewed the importance of careful design in the delivery of meaningful ecological enhancement.
