Green Roof Case Studies

Domestic green roof in Fife

The installation of a sedum roof to a residential extension in St Andrews was initially received with scepticism from the Planning Authority due to the non-traditional nature of the proposals, however, permission was granted and the roof installed in Spring 2013. Subsequently, the owner has planted bulbs and alpine flowers to increase the biodiversity value of the roof.
