Eixverd not only implements solutions that are validated by scientific research, we also contribute to the scientific research with an experimental rooftop built to investigate technology and techniques in a Mediterranean environment.
Green roofs and various sustainable construction methods are not new. Extensive research exists in Europe and North America, but not specifically in a Mediterranean environment. To contribute to that dataset, we collaborate with UPC's School of Building Construction of Barcelona (EPSEB), the Institute of Environmental Science and Technology (ICTA) and Sustainable Urban Drainage to install a deck where we can experimentally monitor at least the following parameters:
We experiment with different construction elements, substrate thicknesses and plant species.
