The recent interest in green roofs around the world has been spurred by the increasing range of benefits that are offered.
WATER RUNOFF REDUCED
During heavy or continuous rain, runoff can overpower stormwater systems and damage waterways and fish habitat. Green roofs are an ideal solution to attenuate stormwater, reducing the burden on existing infrastructure. Green roofs are also efficient filters and can provide clean water for the structure or space.
Green roofs reduce the energy required to cool or heat a building, leading to significant cost savings. In summer, the green roof protects the building from direct solar heat while in winter, the green roof minimises heat loss through added insulation on the roof.
BENEFICIAL FOR THE ENVIRONMENT
Green roofs reduce greenhouse gasses by lowering energy consumption. It has been proved that the mass installation of green roofs in urban spaces could in fact reduce the ‘urban heat island’, resulting in cooler cities during the hot summer months.
Greening the roof provides protection by reducing the daily temperature changes of the roof membrane and extending its length of performance over time. Membranes on green roofs typically last twice as long as those on traditional roofs due to the temperature being regulated.
COMPETITIVE LIFE CYCLE COSTS
The installation cost of a green roof is higher than a traditional roof, however, the long-term lifecycle cost is highly competitive. When consideration is given to roof replacement cost, energy savings and less expensive building air-handling systems, it is clear that the long-term cost benefits far outweigh the short term.
Green roofs can make the most of unused space, a rising need with the increasing density of our cities. These rooftops can be developed into social and recreational spaces and used for urban agriculture.

PROJECT | MANLY ESPLANADE APARTMENTS
Atlantis Aurora completed a green roof at the Manly Esplanade Apartments to celebrate the precinct’s 20th anniversary. The results speak for itself, with a stunning rooftop garden that features sloped landscaping, curved planter beds, a green lawn and gardens that surround a pool – a perfect encapsulation of the Manly lifestyle.
