17 Mar BSG talk at Greenbuild Expo 2011, Manchester
Principal Ecologist Guy Miller will be presenting a seminar ‘Brown roofing: roofs for biodiversity’.
Baker Shepherd Gillespie provides detailed ecological design advice for green and brown roofs. We were instrumental in the design and creation of two landmark projects: a large, species-rich, calcareous grassland roof on a visitor centre in Derbyshire, and a biodiverse brown roof on the Woolwich Arsenal building in London. The Woolwich Arsenal roof, one of the largest in the capital, attained the Biodiversity Award at the Sustain Magazine Awards 2010.
Greenbuild Expo 2011 will be in Manchester on 29-30th June 2011. It is the UK’s newest sustainable building event and the largest in the north-west.
