Green roof on Mirail university restaurant

Vegetal i.D. built 2 green roofs on a university restaurant. The R+1 roof was been made watertight on a concrete medium (reverse waterproofing) and the R+2 roof was made watertight on a steel system. The i.D. MAT sedum mat was installed on both roofs.

The key-points of the project:

  • The green roof on a steel medium (R+2) has significant stresses from load and lifting.
  • The green roof on a concrete medium with reverse insulation: the weight of the planted system must be added to the ballasting provided by the insulator.
  • The planted surfaces are narrow and delicate to water. Special watering equipment must be used: This installation used rectangular nozzle spray irrigation.
  • Presence of solar panels on one of the planted surfaces: selection of sedums able to support semi-shaded exposure, and special watering to irrigate the concealed area well.

  • Year completed: 2012
  • Roof medium: concrete and steel
