A ZinCo green roof from Alumasc has been used for the roof garden of the Ormeau Bakery apartments in Belfast

The 156 apartments have been created from the refurbishment of the old bakery building and incorporate a landscaped courtyard garden.

RPP Architects specified ZinCo intensive green roofing elements and Hydrotech MM6125 waterproofing for the car park podium.

The design uses a deep substrate to support a variety of tree, shrub and grass species. The intensive system offers the benefits of a small urban park, providing a habitat for wildlife as well as recreational access for residents and visitors.

The Hydrotech MM6125 was chosen for the waterproofing element, offering a solution for inverted green roofs and hard landscaped podium structures in new build applications.
