I visited Building Green partner Organic Roofs‘ workshop and green roof demonstration centre in Shoreham recently.
Organic Roofs head honcho Lee Evans showed me around the site, which has an amazing view of the harbour.
On the site are two green roofs created on shipping containers, a nursery for green roof plants, and a new research station that will be measuring the performance of different substrates and plant systems. There’s also a ‘waste office’ which takes after the award winning Waste House in Brighton.
Organic Roofs won a number of awards recently, including NRFC Green Roof of the Year, Brighton & Hove’s Best Environmental Industry Company, as well as being finalists in 2 other categories at the #BAHBAs – Fastest Growing Company and Best Place to Work.
