The Westfield project was a prestigious re-fit of 1500m2 biodiverse roofs where the original substrate had been inappropriate and failed to yield the requirements originally specified.

System Used:

EGR Green Roof System

Bird and bat boxes were installed to maximise biodiversity.

The Task

Our Eco Green Roofs business were selected by Westfield Shopping Centre, Stratford to help rectify some of their failing green roofs. Originally installed just before the Olympics, several roofs on the shopping centre and on the hotel had failed to vegetate and in many cases were left looking bare.

The Outcome

Eco Green Roofs completed the roofs by adding two types of planting; wildflower plug-plants and seeds which were carefully selected to provide a diversity of local flora to offer a good nectar source for invertebrates over an extended period, and wildflower mats to the hotel’s roofs to provide more instant aesthetic value.
