The green car park roofing consists of a circular green roof with a diameter of ca. 25 m. It was installed over an existing car park in order to add value to the existing surrounding area and improve the quality of life of the residents. The green roof fills an urban gap and makes the former void available again to the public. The roof garden creates a meeting point and urban recreational space, safe from cars and also easily accessible with a lift. It provides a series of areas for different kinds of activities, both exposed to the sun for the colder months and shaded for the warmer months. Technically, all this was realised on the fully laid Floradrain® FD 40-E. The trees on the roof are exposed to high forces due to wind pressure and wind suction, which is why the Robafix® tree anchoring system was used. It is installed without any roof penetration.
