Project Title: Flower Lillies Roof Installation, Derbyshire

Client: Private Developer

Location: Derbyshire, United Kingdom

Project Overview:

The Flower Lillies project involved the installation of a new roof for a residential development in Derbyshire. The objective was to incorporate sustainable design elements, including the future installation of a green roof. The project aimed to enhance energy efficiency, aesthetic appeal, and environmental sustainability.


Integration of Sustainable Design: One of the primary challenges was to ensure that the new roof design seamlessly integrated with future plans for a green roof. This required careful consideration of structural integrity, waterproofing, and drainage systems to support the weight of the green roof while maintaining the overall design aesthetic.

Weather Constraints: Derbyshire experiences varying weather conditions throughout the year, including rain, snow, and strong winds. Thus, the construction timeline needed to account for potential weather delays and ensu re that the roof installation could proceed safely and effectively.


Customized Roof Design: Our team collaborated closely with architects and structural engineers to develop a customized roof design that could accommodate the future installation of a green roof. This involved selecting appropriate materials, such as lightweight yet durable roofing membranes and supports capable of bearing the additional weight of vegetation.

Robust Waterproofing System: To mitigate the risk of water damage and ensure long-term durability, we implemented a comprehensive waterproofing system comprising high-quality membranes, sealants, and flashing details. This system was designed to withstand the challenging weather conditions prevalent in Derbyshire.

Flexible Construction Schedule: Recognizing the unpredictability of weather patterns, we devised a flexible construction schedule that allowed for adjustments in response to changing weather conditions. This approach helped minimize delays and ensure the timely completion of the roof installation.


The Flower Lillies roof installation project was completed successfully, meeting the client’s objectives for modernization and sustainability. The new roof not only enhances the aesthetic appeal of the residential development but also lays the groundwork for the future installation of a green roof. By prioritizing innovative design, robust construction techniques, and effective collaboration, we were able to overcome challenges and deliver a high-quality roofing solution tailored to the unique requirements of the project.
