15th to 17th November 2023 marked the ninth installation of ArchXpo, an annual exhibition of architecture and the built environment. This year, the excitement was heightened with the unveiling of Elmich’s groundbreaking innovation, the Smart BlueGreen Roof™ , also known as the Modular Stormwater Detention System. The Smart BlueGreen Roof™ addresses the impacts of climate change with improved at-source stormwater management practices through automatic attenuation of stored rainwater.
The past three days saw a multitude of visitors that marvelled at the adaptability and functionalities of the system, envisioning possibilities to convert conventional roofs into vibrant green spaces that not only promotes biodiversity and reduce the impact of urban heat island effects, but also minimises the likelihood of flooding in urban areas, especially in cities, by reducing the volume of surface run-off entering sewer networks.
About the Smart BlueGreen Roof™
The Smart BlueGreen Roof™ is a ground breaking system that collects stormwater during rain events, temporarily stores it, and then automatically gradually releases it over a predetermined period of time.
Here are five incredible benefits of this system:
1. Flood Prevention – The Smart BlueGreen Roof™ minimises the likelihood of flooding in urban areas, especially in cities, by reducing the volume of surface run-off entering sewer networks.
2. Sustainable Green Roofs – Besides minimising the likelihood of floods in urban areas, the Smart BlueGreen Roof™ offers a versatile and eco-friendly solution whether you want to retrofit or create stunning green roofs.
3. Water Conservation – Water stored in the Smart BlueGreen Roof™’s Trays can be re-purposed for non-potable uses such as irrigation and cooling solar panels.
4. Environmental Impact – The Smart BlueGreen Roof™ promotes biodiversity, mitigates urban heat islands, and reduces the carbon footprint of buildings.
5. Easy Installation – In the event that a layout modification is necessary, each tray can be added, removed, or rearranged without disruptions to the green roof’s functionality.
