Greening the barrel roof of a winery

Bodegas Ramón Bilbao in Haro, a winery steeped in tradition and innovation, is located in the ancient wine-growing region of Rioja Alta in the north east of Spain. Apart from its world-renowned exclusive wines, it now has a green roof that is just as exclusive. By using three different ZinCo systems, a perfectly fitting green roof was installed on the barrel roof of the new winery, ranging from flat to steep-pitched, and covering an area of about 2,000 m² and arched up to 35°.

Olea All Suite Hotel on Zakynthos

The Greek island of Zakynthos is characterised by rich vegetation, which enables the Olea All Suite Hotel and its 7,170 m² to blend easily and naturally into the hilly landscape. The reason is that the roofs on all of the individual buildings – an area of about 2,000 m² in total – are greened, row for row. In between the buildings we have 4,000 m² of refreshing pool water and the almost 100-year old olive trees (Lat. Olea europaea), which give this expansive hotel complex its name.

In the midst of the beautiful landscape of the wheat fields of Tierra de Campos in Villamartín de Campos in the Province of Palencia/Spain, the company “Farming Agrícola“ have built a modern and stunning office building with an impressing 800 sqm of green roofs. The design and build of these green roofs have been a technical challenge due to the different slopes, which vary from 4° in the flat areas to 20°, 40°, and 45° in the steeper areas.

Wimbledon Grounds is a mixed-use regeneration masterplan with a high profile residential development. Within the residential area 14.000 sqm of Blue Roofs has been installed. The ZinCo stormwater management system combines the benefits of green roof or transitable areas with an efficient flood prevention tool.
