Bio-Diverse Green Roof Sand Pumping Station Durban

The Bio-Diverse Green Roof Design and installation was undertaken by  The Green Roof Team  consisting of Clive Greenstone of Green Roof Designs, Michael Hickman and Hlengiwe Luthuli of Ecoman  in February 2012 in Durban, South Africa using a modular system developed by Clive Greenstone. This roof really tested our skills because of the strong winds and salt laden air that the planting has to withstand.
