Built-Up

Advanced Green Roof Built-Up is a cost effective solution for customers looking to design biodiverse green roof ecosystems. The patent pending Advanced Green Roof drainage layer is installed on top of a recommended protective slip-sheet and waterproof membrane after which green roof media and plants are installed. Green roof media can be blown onto the roof or lifted up in bags and spread out on top of the AGR drainage layer. A combination of perennials, grasses, sedum mats, plugs and cuttings can be used to create complex landscape structure and increased biodiversity. AGA encourages the use of habitat structures such a logs and gravel swaths for use by a variety of birds and insects to increase biodiversity. AGR built up system eliminates the greenhouse production process required for our pre-grown system which makes it a cost effective option for any project. Advanced Green Roof’s patent-pending subsurface irrigation system and ability to support a variety of media depths on the same roof allows for a wide range of plant types to be planted. Check out our video section for an example of an AGR built-up installation.

[tab_first] Over three years of green roof research and development went into Advanced Green Roof Built-UP. AGR Built-Up consolidates a drainage layer and subsurface irrigation system into a modular interlocking tray system. Data from green roof research studies pointed to the need for integrated subsurface irrigation. An integrated subsurface irrigation system increases water efficiency if supplemental irrigation is wanted and also improves green roof performance.

[tab] The biodiversity of a particular ecosystem is directly related to the diversity of plants in that ecosystem. When there are many plant species present there is very often many wildlife species present because animals and insects directly or indirectly depend on plants for food. More plants = more insects = more birds = more forms of higher life increasing benefits for human health. This is not limited to vegetation only i.e. complexities of soil, topography, climate and vegetation can increase wildlife diversity. AGR built-up can be used to design a biodiverse built-up green roof system (see built-up portfolio).

[tab] Installing Advanced Green Roof Built-Up is a quick and easy process. The AGR drainage layer is set down and interlocks into adjacent drainage layers. Drip lines are then installed feeding through irrigation channels. A “guiding bullet” attaches to drip lines to help feed the lines through the irrigation channels as seen in slide 5 above. If irrigation is spec-ed in on a project the drip lines connect to a lateral line which connects to a value(s) controlled by a specified controller. If irrigation is not spec-ed in the drip lines are capped off. If irrigation is wanted or needed there after the install irrigation hookup is an easy and simple process as the irrigation infrastructure is already installed. Soil is installed and spread to specified depths and AGR specified plants are planted (see slide 6 for a video).

[tab] Advanced Green Roof Pre-Grown tray is warranted against photodegredation and material defects for 20 years from the date of installation if AGR has edging, pavers or parapet surrounding.
AGR currently offers a 20 year Total System Warranty with Versico Roofing Systems, Inc. Other membrane manufacturer warranties may be considered on a project by project basis.

[tab] We work with clients to specify green roof plants. Because AGR integrates subsurface irrigation, plants other than Sedum can be specified leading to more plant design options. Please contact us for more information on our green roof plant mixes and plant specification guidance.
