Guidance on the delivery of blue roofs RP1099

A blue roof is designed to allow attenuation and management of rainfall, managing water at its source. They are becoming a common approach to deliver SuDS and manage local flood risk, particularly in dense urban environments. Despite their popularity there is a lack of high quality, independent guidance on their planning, design, construction, evaluation and maintenance. This project will provide guidance on blue roofs and the delivery of multiple benefits to improve confidence in their specification, design and delivery.
