Alumasc Roofing Systems have looked back to the time the first Alumasc BluRoof system was installed in the UK, back in 2015.
The installation of the pioneering Blue Roof Water Attenuation System ‘BluRoof’ at University of Bristol’s Arts and Social Sciences Lecture Theatre was part of the university’s sustainable construction project.
This project set out to ensure that any green space lost to the building was not only replaced, but actively enhanced, meaning a solution was needed for the Theatre roof that was highly sustainable and reliable.
The past three years has seen the BluRoof System provide the ideal solution for the University, by avoiding the costly excavation of the bedrock beneath the University for added drainage by attenuating the rainwater and controlling the flow rate at which it leaves.
This water attenuation, in conjunction with the drainage layers, has helped the Blackdown Green Roof’s variety of Bio-diverse plant species to flourish, which has made a noticeable difference to the surrounding wildlife.
On top of all this, the University of Bristol’s BluRoof has helped regulate the building’s temperature over the duration of its introduction, via the warm roof/insulation layer within the system – therefore, making improving the building’s energy efficiency.
Bristol University has achieved the highest BREEAM rating possible, ‘Excellent’, which is undoubtedly thanks in part to Alumasc’s patented BluRoof System, together with Alumasc’s knowhow and experience within the roofing and drainage industry when implementing the system.
This proven knowledge and experience, not only of the roofing industry but also drainage, gives Alumasc a unique advantage by being able to provide all components involved in designing a successful Blue Roof from one, single source.
This historic partnership between Alumasc Roofing Horticultural and Drainage Divisions is, according to Alumasc, vital to the success of a roofing system of this nature; this is backed up by Alumasc’s single source warranties, which provide the customer with ultimate peace of mind.
