Scandinavian Green Roof Institute (SGRI) specialises in urban bluegreen infrastructure. Our main focus here at the institute is green roofs and facades but we also work as consultants for projects involving green infrastructure. We welcome collaboration in projects of all different sizes!
We offer our services to landscape architects, engineers, real estate owners and housing companies. We offer guidance and support in the decision making process such as construction details, material selection and modelling of green roofs and facades.
Through our experience and expertise we can ensure that all parts of your project from the idea itself to the installation and maintenance are executed at a high standard and meet the needs and functions that you desire. Our goal for all the projects we work with is to produce sustainable systems that deliver long term environmental services.
Here, we helped in building and planning two different types of green roofs. A lush green roof meadow was installed on the roof top courtyard and sedum plant beds were used on the rooftops of the surrounding houses. These green roofs were also used as a case study in the innovation project BiodiverCity, which is a VINNOVA funded project.

Combined system of solar panels and green roof meadows
This green rooftop meadow was mounted in combination with solar panels. Here and we worked with the design and plant selection for the meadow. We also assisted MKB with assessing the final inspection and implementation of the meadow. The Kv Sofia project was also used as a case study in the innovation project BiodiverCity, which is a VINNOVA funded project.
