Green roof WSUD asset page

We have curated the best green walls guidelines and case studies on our new WSUD assets’ green roof webpage. Here you will find information about the benefits of incorporating a green roof into your next project, backed up by the supporting evidence and research.

Before you start you next green roof project, take a look at the expert advice provided by Graeme Hopkins on the design tips and video highlights pages. And if you’re after some inspiration for your residential, public realm or commercial project, check out the green roof projects and demonstrations.

One project that we feature is the Adelaide Zoo entrance building and Sanctuary conference facility, which incorporates an intensive green roof. In contrast, the roof of the former Orang-utan buildings were converted to a lightweight extensive green roof without any modifications to the existing roof support structure.
