From managing storm water to growing fresh local produce, our specialty systems are designed for forward-thinkers looking for a green roof to do so much more.
Maximum water retention
New municipal regulations and climate change have highlighted the need for responsible stormwater management. These custom roof systems are designed to capture stormwater and release it in a sustainable fashion.
Creating new habitats for local flora and fauna
Green roofs with the birds and bees in mind. Biodiverse green roofs have an ecological focus and are intentionally designed to provide habitat for a range of organisms. Suitable native plants with a range of micro habitats are the target. ZinCo green roof systems offer the flexibility to make this happen.
Increased energy efficiency with lower costs
Green roofs combined with solar work in synergy. The full range of green roof benefits with no roof penetrations and improved solar panel efficiency.
Help cool cities by up to 2 degrees
System Build-up with maximum evaporation capacity helps you work to cool your city's micro-climate by up to 2 degrees.
Fresh fruits, vegetables, and herbs grown on a rooftop garden
As urban density increases, so does the need to grow food locally. The Urban Farming systems are designed to optimize fruit and vegetable growth (such as lettuce, onions, herbs, zucchini, eggplant, squash, cabbage, melons, strawberries and more...).
Greener cities are healthier cities – and ZinCo green roofs can significantly contribute to making cities and buildings more livable by:
