Build green roofs successfully


We are facing a great opportunity

Architects, designers, builders, developers, architecture students…

The global green roof market reached a value of around 1.38 billion USD in 2020 and is expected to grow at an annual rate of 17%.

Tax incentives and benefits offered by governments around the world and the growing concern about tackling climate change are creating lucrative opportunities for the green roof market, which will reach a value of 3.20 billion USD by 2026.

And you, will you lose the opportunity to be part of this growth?

You will be able to join the movement to RE-NATURALIZE CITIES AND BUILD GREEN ROOFS SUCCESSFULLY, in addition to taking advantage of the growing revenue opportunities that the market offers.

You’ve probably thought about working in the green roof market but you’ve come across countless obstacles – you don’t know where to start, you don’t want to make mistakes and waste time or money!

Don’t worry, we have the solution for you.
At Eixverd we have more than 7 years of experience in the design, construction and maintenance of green roofs. To date, we have helped build more than 40 green roofs covering more than 12,000 m² of new green space. We have encountered all sorts of problems along the way: obstacles with the sale, with the design, technical barriers and maintenance problems, which we have been able to solve. In addition, we had an experimental rooftop where we tested materials, systems and substrates. We have surrounded ourselves with people interested in solving the issue of climate change from the perspective of green roofs, sustainable water management and the selection of plants for a Mediterranean environment.

We’ve found solutions for every problem and yes, we want to share them with you!

How will we do it? That’s big news !!

Together with AD + Green, we have developed the best online course to BUILD GREEN ROOFS SUCCESSFULLY.
AD + GREEN was born with the aim of promoting a global movement to re-naturalize cities through the massive construction of green roofs. Educating, encouraging and designing green roofs! And we want to invite you to be a part of this revolution!

This is a great opportunity in these times of crisis!
As architects, developers, builders and architecture students, the current climate situation presents itself as an opportunity to generate a positive social and environmental impact through our projects. And at the same time take advantage of the new and growing sources of income! Because more and more green roofs will be demanded in real estate developments.

And you’ll be ready to build them successfully, if you sign up for our course!

“Our course helps professionals in the construction sector to design and build green roofs so that they can increase their income by building projects with a high social and environmental impact that deal with climate change”

An architecture student, architect, designer or developer with no experience in building green roofs and you want to avoid mistakes that will save you time and money when developing a green roof project and are you looking for advice from experienced professionals in the field?

This is your course.

When designing and building a green roof, you think you know the technique but then… you don’t know where to start ?! You have the list of materials, but which geotextile should I choose? And the anti-root sheet, which will work best? Or which irrigation system suits me?

These are all very important details. A bad decision can cost you project failure, bad reputation, and a loss of money. Plants could die, roots could break the waterproofing, leaks could occur, substrate overflows… Mistakes! But don’t worry,

We have the SOLUTION to all your problems, based on our experience of more than 40 successfully built green roofs!
