Radisson Blu Green Roof Project in Heathrow

We announced recently that we have been working on the installation of a modular green roof system at the Radisson Blu hotel at Heathrow and we are delighted to announce that the installation is now complete.

For this project, it was decided that the M-Tray sedum green roofing system would offer the ideal solution.

M-TRAY is a ready-grown, fully established sedum, sedum-and-wildflower or wildflower-only green roof loaded into a portable tray, for easier installation of green roofs.

For a look at the timeline of the project, please check out the gallery below.

Future Proofing the Installation

Access to the roof is future-proofed. If there are problems with the deck beneath or inspection is required, one M-TRAY or section can easily be lifted out without any disruption to the whole deck. With loose lay systems, the whole area may need to be destroyed when accessing the deck.

Major Advantages

A major advantage to the M-TRAY system is the “clip on” nature of installation. The fuss, time and skill required to install drainage layers one-by-one, to the correct level and in the correct order is removed as it comes in a complete kit.

Please contact our sales office for further information about the M-Tray green roofing system.
