Eco Village New Build - Green Roof

by Wallbarn Ltd

Silverlakes eco village in Dorset is a new build venture where the client wanted to achieve maximum sustainability.


The houses, boat houses, garages and also communal areas such as the leisure centre required green roofs and M-Tray® was chosen due to its ease of transport and installation, and its square modular nature.


Pre-grown, healthy sedum plants inside the plastic trays were laid onto the flat roofs across the village, providing an attractive dressing and improving storm water attenuation, thermal insulation and a magnet for wildlife.
