We create sustainable living roofs Our specialist team can install flat, pitched and dome green roofing systems across the United Kingdom. Our previous projects have ranged from the Outer Hebrides in the north west of Scotland to Ramsgate in the south east of England.
Let us maintain your green roof for you to ensure the maximum return on your investment. We can also offer Biodiversity Net Gain monitoring and reporting on the performance of the roof in line with legislation.
A typical project journey
Get in touch
We can help with the design of your living roof and a system specification in line with the GRO Code (Green Roof Organisation Code of good practice) and Biodiversity Net Gain guidelines. If you have a design and or a specification for your living roof, we can digitally measure the area from a plan and provide an initial estimate for the living roof components and our specialist team to install it for you.
Roof plans & location address
We will need a plan of your roof and the full address of where the roof is located. We also need to know the weight allowance of your roof – you can find this information from the architect or a structural engineer.
We will supply you with an estimate for the supply of materials and the installation of the living roof. If you would like to progress your enquiry, we would need to visit the location and assess the roof and the surrounding area.
We will carry out a site survey
We will use this opportunity to assess the site, agree a logistics plan for material deliveries and suggest how materials can be safely lifted to the rooftop. We will also provide recommendations on edge protection for our team to safely install the living roof. These elements are not included in our estimates.
We will send you a final quote
Our estimates are very accurate and rarely change, however the site survey is important for all parties to fully understand each others provisions for the installation of a safe and sustainable living roof.
Roof leak test
We recommend an independent leak test is carried out to ensure the roof surface is watertight immediately before the green roof is installed. If any leaks are detected, they can be repaired prior to greening.
Our fully certified and award winning team will work safely, professionally and efficiently to bring the roof to life and welcome interaction, hot drinks and cake throughout the process!
It is important that water is available at roof level or irrigation is in place to water the roof during establishment. In some cases watering from ground level is adequate. This provision is also important for prolonged dry spells and high temperatures to water the roof if needed.
The success of a living roof comes down to maintenance. All living organisms require some maintenance from time to time and living, green roofs are no exception. A typical living roof requires two to three visits per year to feed the vegetation and remove unwanted growth. Watering may be beneficial to the roof during droughts and dry periods. We can offer biodiversity monitoring and reporting using remote sensing data.
Bridgman & Bridgman are specialists in the design, supply, installation and maintenance of living roofs on new and existing buildings across the UK. We are also passionate about every rooftop that can be becoming green through our Green Roof Project initiative and creating new green jobs and opportunities by upskilling people and communities with our specialist training programmes.
