Green Roof Construction

Green Roof Research Project Durban

I was very fortunate to be included in the team that conducted the green roof pilot project the first and only research project undertaken in South Africa in which ground breaking research was undertaken to determine many aspects of green roof design and construction as well as the suitability of a range local South African plants to be grown in the green roof environment under the leadership of the green roof expert Dr Clive Greenstone and plant specialist and green roof designer and builder Michael Hickman.

Evaluation of the Green Roofs
A brief evaluation of the Green roof trials conducted in Durban over a period of ten years.

Early in 2009 I became involved in the eThekwini Municipality Green Roof Pilot Project at which time I started the trial of a number of species of local plants at Mount Moreland north of Durban.
