Sedum mat for cambridge cycle route

Improvements to Hills Road Cycle Route by Sedum Supply Ltd

Sedum Supply Ltd have supplied and installed a sedum matting as part of the works to improve Hills Road Cycle Route in Cambridge. Cambridge’s Cross City Cycling Consultation saw a £4 million budget put into place for improvements to five project areas. One of these included the Hills Road Cycle Route that is a very busy route for the Biomedical Campus and local schools.

sedum cycle route project

The project involved planting a sedum mat border between the pedestrian foot path and the new red asphalt cycling path. The objective to plant sedum was to create a clear divide between pedestrians and cyclists. Whilst giving both enough space to allow the full track width to be ultilised.

Sedum Supply Ltd were contracted for the supply and installation of the sedum matting. Local residents and cycle route users have commented on the successful improvement to the Hills Road Cycle Route and are happy with the look of the new bio diverse sedum.

James Berry, who worked on the project, said:”I just wanted to thank you for the number of improvements to the ‘Green’ Cycleway including; laying the sedum on the Eastern side of Hills Road”.

Scilly Islands EPDM Roofing Project – Peninnis Farm Lodges

EPDM Roofing Project

New Lodges get EPDM Rubber Roofing Installed

Sedum Supply Ltd has been busy installing the EPDM Rubber Roofing onto 7 new lodges at Peninnis Farm.

The project is well underway with the installation of EPDM roofing. The new bespoke lodges are designed to unsure a unique holiday experience which are situated in St Mary’s, Isles of Scilly. As a matter of fact the lodges are named after the islands pilot gigs.

Furthermore the project was subcontracted to Sedum Supply Ltd by Pod Living Ltd to complete the EPDM waterproof membrane for the 7 roofs. The project has not only been exciting but challenging at times. Access to the islands is difficult making shipping materials costly and time consuming however our experienced team has been working hard to complete the project quickly and to a high standard. Here at Sedum Supply Ltd like to say ‘No project is to difficult or to big.’

As the project developed it was desired that something needed to be designed to fit onto the EPDM rubber which would allow the roof cladding to be safely secured to it without compromising the EPDM waterproof layer. Our design team quickly began work on designing bespoke brackets for each roof to allow the installation of the cladding and shipped these over to the Island for installation. Sedum Supply is experience in designing bespoke fittings for roofs to provide the best installation solution.

 

EPDM Rubber

 

 

The project consisted on 980 square meters of Firestone EPDM Rubber Membrane. Our experienced team have installed the EPDM membrane as a waterproof layer before the finishing roof cladding is installed to complete the desired log cabin look.

EPDM is a highly durable rubber roofing membrane which is used and recommended worldwide. It provides a watertight and extremely durable roofing solution for small and large commercial projects. Also it has an incredible life expectancy of 50 years, which is considerable more than traditional roofing materials.

Bio Diverse Green Roof for Organic Farm

Bio Diverse Green Roofs

Sedum Supply Ltd supplied and installed the bio diverse green roof for Fordhall Organic Farm in Market Drayton, Shropshire. A single ply waterproofing system was used on an existing roof deck and a bio diverse planted roof system installed to create a beautiful substainable roof system.

The Wildflower green roof installation was part of a full renovation and extension to the old dairy. Which would provide new offices, a classroom, tearoom, butchery and farm shop. The green roof was planted with carefully selected wildflowers and grasses native to the local area as requested by the client.

The client, Shingler Homes, said: “Sedum Supply have been putting the gravel base onto our green roof. This substrate will hold a beautiful bio diverse roof, which all the local wildlife will be able to take advantage of throughout the year.”

The new bio diverse green roof will provide many benefits to both, Fordhall Organic Farm and the environment. Wildlife will have a new habitat, stormwater runoff will be reduced as well as noise, pollution and energy costs. The beautiful wildflower roof can be appreicated 6 days of the week as they are open all year round to the public.

The organic farm also offers free farm trails, organic café, group tours, glamping in our yurts, educational visits, events, courses, weddings, meeting room space, care farming and volunteering opportunities.

GREEN ROOF FOR LEEDS UNIVERSITY – Sedum Supply Ltd

Sedum Supply Ltd completed the green roof project for Leeds University. This was the very first green roof installation for Leeds University which was installed on its brand new performing arts centre.

The project was a winner at the Leeds Architecture Awards for New Building and was also short-listed for the 2008 RIBA Awards

Green Roof Leeds University

The new green roof will provide a beautiful feature to the Performing Arts Centre, encouraging the diversity of birds, insects and plant life right in the centre of the city and doing it’s small bit to protect the city from flooding.

The distinctive design concept for the building takes its inspiration from the Victorian Street patterns previously present on site and utilises a strong linear theme on the external facade. The use of dark coloured cladding, set against the adjacent glazed entrance/atrium space, works to create a sense of drama and makes a prominent architectural contribution to the campus and wider city.

Sedum Supply based in Shropshire are green roof specialists who supply and install green roofs across the UK. Sedum green roofs provide many advantages aswell as being much nicer to look at than the traditional waterproofing materials. There are however some much more serious advantages which may help to contribute to our current climate concerns.

Leeds University Arts Building Green Roof

 

Green Roofs help to alleviate flooding. The soft layer of sedum blanket growing on a green roof also has the affect of absorbing sound, quietening noisy urban environments and reducing sound pollution within a building. It also increases the thermal insulation of a property making it warmer in winter, cooler in summer and reducing energy costs.

A very important environmental benefit is that green roofs encourage biodiversity of an area. Green roofs can help compensate for the loss of green surfaces, sacrificed to building developments.
