The green roof project, along with other eco-friendly construction measures, is meant to help the city adjust to population growth and climate change. To this end, green roofing measures for residential and non-residential buildings are subsidised with up to 50,000 EUR via the Hamburg IFB bank. There are plenty of reasons for green roofs in urban spaces. First and foremost, the city’s appearance and quality of life improve significantly. Tenants and employees are provided with additional green areas for sports and leisure activities. The rooftop gardens protect your home or office from snow, rain and heat, and contribute strongly to energy efficiency by delivering a natural building envelope.
