ABG creative geosynthetic engineering - Using Roofs and Podiums for Stormwater Management
Using Roofs and Podiums for Stormwater Management
This seminar explores the use of roof or podium areas for the temporary attenuation of stormwater during periods of heavy rainfall, which can then be released back into the environment at a controlled rate. An ‘at source’ SuDS process, useful on tight urban sites, it minimises the rainwater outlets required, and can be used in combination with various surface finishes.

ABG is a UK market leader in the design and manufacture of high performance, geocomposite systems for civil engineering, environmental and sustainable building projects. ABG has supplied most of the leading weather-proofing manufacturers with drainage and reservoir boards over the last 25 years, and designs and installs green, blue and vegetated roofs and retaining wall systems for many key developers.

Approximate duration excluding time for questions/answers: 45 minutes.
