Green roof system office building Oosterhout (Netherlands)

In 2013, the management at the Knauf Insulation plant in Oosterhout set out to create an environmentally friendly “green roof” system on one of its office buildings. To do so, they needed to come up with a design that would be strong enough to walk on yet demonstrate superior drainage performance and durability. It was also important to use a natural material in the drainage layer.
Applications such as these require that the products used in their construction demonstrate both high resistance to physical damage and eco-friendliness in their manufacture.
