Garden Roof Assembly: Stormwater

Garden Roof® Assembly Blue Roof

Elevating Hydrotech’s Garden Roof Assembly by placing it on Permavoid®, a structural void component (available exclusively through Hydrotech) integrates the many advantages of a vegetated roof with the high water detention capabilities of a blue roof. Permavoid® provides a stable platform with an open space of 95% within the unit. The structural nature of Permavoid® is created by plastic tubes between the webbed top and bottom panels. This creates a platform onto which any number of Garden Roof® and Ultimate Assembly® components can be installed.

Architectural pavers can be installed to create pedestrian spaces and to provide access to roof parapets and mechanical equipment. Garden Roof® components can be used to create extensive green roofs on top of the Permavoid® units. Additionally, LiteTop® within the Garden Roof® Assembly can increase the water holding capacity of this composite Blue Roof assembly.
