Alumasc Green Roof chosen for Eco Holiday Homes

                                                                                                                                                                                                                            A combination of Alumasc ZinCo Biodiverse and Extensive Green Roofs has been chosen for an outstanding ecological project at Trevose Golf and Country Club in Cornwall. Seven new holiday lodges have been designed by Architects Lilly Lewarne, to an eco-friendly specification, replacing the original timber visitor chalets which were erected in the 1950’s.

Alumasc’s Green Roof system was specified to ensure that the lodges blended with the fairway and outreaching landscape.  A Biodiverse system was specified for Lodges 1-3, using a combination of turf and planting to blend in with the green at the 18th hole of the golf course. The existing fairway was continued up the side of the new building and formed part of the grass roof. The Biodiverse planting scheme was chosen carefully to suit the area and attract local species of insects. 

Lodges 4-7 are camouflaged by a grass bank but required a green roofing solution due to their visibility from the club house.  Alumasc’s low-growing ZinCo Extensive Green Roof system was used, comprising self-sustaining sedum plants which are wind, frost and drought resistant. These plants will eventually establish themselves to form a natural habitat for existing wildlife species in the area.
