Design

Blackdown offers a comprehensive design service to support our customers and ensure that the most appropriate Blackdown roof system is specified, installed and maintained for long‐term benefit.

With a wide range of plant‐related skills and experience, Blackdown advises on an array of roof planting issues, devising project‐specific specifications and providing supporting technical information, such as CAD details and data sheets.

Our experience in cultivating plants in the UK's climate and in installing green roof solutions sets us apart when advising on the suitability of a planting strategy; assessing vegetative needs against conditions prevailing in a roof's particular micro‐climate.

Because we do not specialise in just one particular type of green roof, we are uniquely equipped to advise our clients on THE most appropriate green roof scheme for the project's requirements.

Whether seeking to fulfil a biodiversity action plan requirement, maximise BREEAM ratings, provide an aesthetic roof covering or overcome a project constraint (e.g. structural or budgetary limitations), Blackdown can devise the optimum sustainable green roof design.

Plant Strategies Can Be Devised for:

  • Biodiversity
  • BREEAM
  • Instant Greening
  • Low Structural Loads
  • Aesthetic Appeal
  • Patterned Designs
  • Budget Constraints
  • Amenity & Recreation
  • Optimal Water Attenuation
