Green cycle shelter benefits Belgian college students
- Location: Antwerpen, Belgium
- Dealer: Klaver fietsparkeren
The addition of a cycle park in the renovated courtyard of the St Lievens College in Antwerp, Belgium has been transformed with a healthy layer of green roof. This simple cassette green roof system MobiRoof from Mobilane creates a welcome green oasis amongst the grey built environment at the school.
The management team at the college wanted a clean, lush and refreshing first impression for a courtyard in need of renovation. Appearance, sustainability and a quality finish were paramount. With the installation of the MobiRoof, their wishes have become reality, with both the playground and cycle shelter renewed and refreshed with their new planted elements.
A green cycle shelter
The construction of the new bicycle shed was designed and completed by Klaver Cycle Parks from the Netherlands. The bike shed has been allocated floor and low level parking levels. The skylight at the heart of the garage provides sufficient light. More than 200 m² of green roof has been installed on the roof of the cycle shelter itself, courtesy of the Mobilane MobiRoof cassettes. The cassettes are suitable for both large and small projects and can be customised to fit. They are easy to install and offer full coverage from between 6-8 different types of sedum plants. Peter from the Klaver Fietsparkeren executive company is very satisfied with the green roof. “Thanks to the cassettes, the green roof is perfect; it was easy to install and visitors can enjoy the immediate visual impact.” The MobiRoof cassettes have not only created a stunning and lasting first impression, but they bring with them the additional benefits of plants and greenery in an urban environment.
