This seminar provides guidance and inspiration on how to maximise the fifth elevation. It covers sustainable waterproofing, insulation, green roofing, carbon capture, energy generation, creating amenity space, providing for biodiversity, harvesting rainwater and more.
The CPD focuses on correct roof design and how to install innovative products so as to retain the integrity of the waterproofing and it makes reference to British standards and codes of practice. It compares built up and modular green roofs and discusses increasing efficiency of photovoltaic energy capture by the specification of solar reflective membranes. The CPD also offers key points on the HSE’s regulations on working at height.
