Much interest in biotope roofs and Biosolar roofs!

Almost a year ago, Malmö was hit by a very heavy storm event – 100 mm rain fell in six hours, which corresponds with a 200-year storm. This heavy rainfall caused a lot of flooding and damages in many city areas and real estates. The three major insurance companies in Sweden received reporting on damages to the amount of 250 million Swedish Crowns. One city area that was relatively unharmed was Augustenborg, thanks to the sustainable open storm water system that was installed in the beginning of 2000. The storm water is lead through canals, swales, ditches and green areas such as green roofs – Augustenborg’s Botanical Roof Garden has 9500 m2 of green roofs!
