Across the Europe there is a rapid increase in urban living and an ever greater understanding of the consequences of global climate change. The emergence of the ‘living roof’ or ‘green roof’ is quickly emerging as a green solution to a serious problem.

Through excellent architecture and innovative urban design, the green roof solution is becoming more prominent throughout the UK and LECA® LWA is a solution which architects and structural engineers are using to replace traditional heavy soil, especially in areas which include building slopes and variation in the terrain.
