Green Roofs and Facades as a Tool for Improvement of Thermal and Water Balance in Industrial Space

Project ID:  TH03030230
Funding provider:  Technology Agency of the Czech Republic
Project duration:  1. 1. 2018 – 31. 12. 2021
Investigator at UCEEB: prof. Ing. Jan Tywoniak CSc.
partners: LIKO-S a.s., Mendelova univerzita v Brně

The aim of the project is to find solutions for vegetation roofs and vegetation facades which will bring real and quantifiable contribution to the creation of the indoor environment of buildings, the microclimate of buildings, the improvement of the water balance in the urbanized space and at the same time they will be technically repeatable with acceptable investment costs, guaranteed low operating costs and adequate lifetime. The project focuses primarily on simple industrial buildings of the hall type. The results can be appropriately used for other buildings (residential, administrative, etc.). A specific topic is the finding additional applications of building elements with greenery on existing buildings, again with an emphasis on industrial and logistic compound.

The project is subsidised by TA ČR, programme EPSILON.
