Green Roof Design Services
Peak specializes in the planning, implementation, and maintenance of green roofs, also known as living roofs or vegetated roofs. Green roofs involve the installation of vegetation, soil, and drainage layers on the roof of a building, creating a functional and eco-friendly space. Our green roof designers work closely with clients to develop customized green roof solutions that align with their specific goals and site conditions. We consider factors such as climate, building structure, weight limitations, and desired plant selection to create a sustainable and aesthetically pleasing rooftop garden.
Rooftop Terrace Construction
Rooftop terrace construction involves the design and construction of outdoor living spaces on the rooftop of a building. Rooftop terraces provide a unique opportunity to create functional and inviting areas for relaxation, entertainment, and enjoyment of panoramic views. Construction of rooftop terraces requires careful consideration of structural integrity, weight distribution, and safety measures. Our professional contractors are skilled in rooftop terrace construction and work closely with clients to understand their vision and create a customized design that maximizes the available space while adhering to building codes and regulations.
Intensive and Extensive Roof Systems
Intensive green roofs are more elaborate and complex in design and require more maintenance and resources. They are characterized by deeper soil depths, typically ranging from 6 to 24 inches, allowing for a wider range of plant species, including trees, shrubs, and larger plants. Intensive green roofs create rooftop gardens that can be used as outdoor recreational spaces, gardens, or even small parks.
Extensive green roofs, also known as lightweight green roofs, are simpler and less resource-intensive compared to intensive green roofs. They are designed with shallower soil depths, typically ranging from 2 to 6 inches, and consist of low-growing, drought-tolerant plant species such as sedums and grasses.
Green roof maintenance programs are comprehensive plans put in place to ensure the ongoing health, functionality, and longevity of green roofs. These programs involve regular inspections, cleaning, and necessary maintenance tasks to optimize the performance of the green roof system.
Green roof maintenance programs are tailored to the specific needs of each green roof system, considering factors such as plant species, climate, roof structure, and local regulations. Regular and proactive maintenance helps optimize the benefits of green roofs, prolong their lifespan, and ensure their continued functionality and aesthetics.
