(PresseBox) - The 5-star luxury GD Victoria Hotel by the Grupo Fedola on the Costa Adeje is in one of the most prestigious tourist regions of Tenerife and is spectacularly impressive with its 1000 mreceived the ?Green Roof Influencer? award.

It is a five-minute walk to the strand from the GF Victoria Hotel, which is named after its managing director, Victoria Lof areas play a vital role in the overall architecture and are a true testimony to the ecological focus of the building.

Steep pitched green roof: Shear protection is decisive

The ZinCo system build-up ?Steep Pitched Green Roof? with Georaster4 x 54 cm in size and 10 cm high, are interlocked without the need for tools, and they immediately create a stable structure. Their low volume provides for a comparatively large space for root penetration. The better the root-penetration of the subsequent plants, the lower the risk of erosion.

The Georaster

Additional erosion prevention measures

Prior to planting, the substrate layer was secured against wind and water erosion using an organic, biodegradable adhesive in addition to coconut fibre nets. Following this, it is essential to plant as quickly and as far-reaching as possible as gaps in the vegetation could in turn mark the start of erosion. Pre-cultivated vegetation mats are generally used for greening steep pitched roofs. In this case we chose the planting option. A well-developed root system and a particularly high plant density were important for planting. Mainly endemic plants were chosen, that is to say, plant types that are indigenous to the Canary Islands and that are best adapted to the climate there. Plants from other warm regions were also used, all of which are heat-resistant and require less water. Two synchronised irrigation systems with driplines in conjunction with the ZinCo Protection Mat WSM 150 provide not only for a perfect supply of water but also the lowest possible level of water consumption.

Green Roof Influencer

The steep pitched green roofs are in full bloom, lending the GF Victoria Hotel a unique and striking appearance. This is the result of the committed collaboration of everyone involved in the project in meeting the significant technical challenges posed by greening the steep pitched roofs of the hotel. For this reason, Gerardo Machado, Managing Director of the contractors, Impermeabilizaciones Machado, S.L.U., was awarded the ?Green Roof Influencer? prize.
