About Protan expand_more
The Protan BlueProof Green Solution was nominated for the Norwegian Construction Industry Innovation Prize.
Protan BlueProof Green combines secure stormwater management with various green roof solutions. This is what we call a bluegreen roof.
Look at all the unused, grey and dead roof areas in every town or city. All you see is roof tiles, roof felting, ventilation systems and satellite dishes. What if you could rather have a park, a nursery school, a football pitch, a roof terrace, a vegetable gardens and beehives?
This is not a vague dream. A roof has an unrealised potential that is only limited by the architect or property developer’s fantasy.
Protan supplies green and bluegreen roofing solutions because we know it's sustainable and futureprood to let your roof to be more than just a roof.
Norway’s first bluegreen roof is at the top of Vega Scene in Oslo – fitted with Protan’s BlueProof Green. The roof is now a research site, where flora from the islands in the Oslo fjord has been planted. During torrential downpours the roof functions as an attenuation system, where filtered water is released gradually and in a controlled way into the Akers river. This prevents it from flooding out into an already overburdened drainage system.
Protan BlueProof Green was nominated for the Construction Industry Innovation Prize and will change the future of the construction industry. A beautiful green roof is equipped with technology that will protect the surroundings against extreme weather as a result of climate change.
