Project Description

Thailand Green Roof

Extensive Green Roof

300 m square

Gaia Mat System

Year Completed: 2017

We installed our first factory green roof on a Nishimatsu factory in Thailand together with Ushio – our Japanese lights partner. We created a mix of species that will be resistant to drought weather and then monsoon season in Thailand. As factories are located in drier areas and have metal roofs, adding a green roof would cool down the roofs, protect the roof and also cool down the factory. This will reduce the amount of energy needed for air-conditioning and provide cost-savings in the long run. The visually appealing green roofs only took one weekend to install -minimal disruptions with an environmentally friendly roof.
