How we work

InHabit & BuildScape has a unique advantage of being a green building consulting, waterproofing and a landscaping company under one roof. This rare combination allows us to create the most efficient, trouble free and aesthetically pleasing green roofs. All aspects of the green roof assembly are controlled by one project team providing customers with peace of mind and the confidence that their roof will continue to perform as intended.

A green roof can only be installed on roof tops, balconies or patios that are well drained and have sufficient sunlight. The BuildScape green roof is a multi-layer system consisting of:

  1. Dual layer Polyurethane waterproofing
  2. HDPE liner root barrier system
  3. HDPE drainboards - drainage layer
  4. A geo-textile filter fabric
  5. Our propitiatory light weight, water retaining and mineral rich growing medium
  6. Non-invasive planting as appropriate for roofs.
  7. Irrigation system.
