Wimbledon, Plough Lane
Wimbledon Grounds is a mixed-use regeneration masterplan with a high profile residential development. Within the residential area 14,000 sqm of Blue Roofs have been installed. The ZinCo stormwater management system combines the benefits of green roofs or trafficable areas with an efficient flood prevention tool. Beneath the beautiful landscaped podiums and green roofs the amount of up to one million litres of rainwater can be temporarily stored. The water is slowly released into the drains after a stormwater event, when there is no risk of flooding anymore. This invisible thin storage layer is an important prevention tool against surface flooding and at the moment one of London’s biggest of its kind.
