The “Zuidpark”, originally dating from the 70s, consists of two office buildings and was renovated completely and adapted to today’s technical standards in 2012. The parking lots in front of the complex are even equipped with a charging station for electric cars. Besides these aspects, the flat green roof plays an important role regarding sustainability. Fruits and vegetables are being grown on the approximately 30 × 100 m large roof. The staff of this commercial complex has the possibility to grow and maintain their own fruits and vegetables on one part of the roof surface. On the rest of the surface, vegetables are also being grown, which are used in the company canteen. Here the system build-ups “Urban Rooftop Farming” on the proven Floradrain® FD 40-E element as well as “Sedum Carpet” with Fixodrain® XD 20 have been applied.
