(PresseBox) - In matters of ecology and sustainability, designers and architects are likely to pay increasing attention to roofs. The huge potential here is illustrated by the residential development, Noltemeyer Hes. A prime example of urban development for the future.

Noltemeyer Herefore a close connection between the inside and outside world. 232 underground parking spaces are concealed beneath a landscaped terrain comprising lawns, trees, bushes, hedges and ground cover, in addition to pathways and driveways, and 22 overground parking spaces. However, apart from the optics, a very different feature provides the key benefit here in terms of ecology and sustainability.

Protection from flooding included

The trick is in the ZinCo system build-up used across the entire 0

The special retention spacers RSX 80, together with the precision-adjustable run-off limiter elements, comprise this perfect technology.

Using a root-resistant roof waterproof membrane as a base, which was applied in the hot bitumen method, the stable Slip Sheet TGF 20 and the system filter PV were installed as a protective layer.

The next layer consists of the RSX 80 retention spacers, 0.60 m x 0.60 m large and 80 mm deep. These spacers, which can withstand loads of up to 50 t/m

The project-specific special depth of 80 mm allows for a maximum storage volume of approx. 76 l/me against each other in the throttle elements, which also function as an overflow.

Anything is possible on top: Surfaces and green areas

After the retention spacers, the system filter PV is installed and an average of 20-30 cm of Zincolit Plus as a substrate base for the planned 2,320 m

The system filter PV was followed by 20-30 cm of sand-stone mixture as a frost protection layer for the required 790 m

These dimensions and the type of installation were also chosen for the 1,940 mfire service vehicles. Seepage-active surfaces such as these ensure a rapid surface drainage in the case of heavy rain events.

The use of solitary trees and shrubs in the middle of extensive lawn areas gives the residential area an expansive feel.

Urban development of the future

The residential development, Noltemeyer Hance - the number of sustainability elements possible on roofs is infinite. All of these elements should and must be exploited in order to build ecologically into the future.
