Completa green roof module – designed for multitasking
7 June 2022
Simplicity is key to successful innovation.
With Completa, we kept things simple. Instead of piling up layers upon layers of material, mechanization, and labor, we invented a small, recycled plastic tray, capable of addressing both practical and big environmental issues. Here is what it can do:
Reduces energy use and cost
By adding a layer of soil and plants, Completa provides additional insulation to the building, saving up to 35 % of heating and cooling energy.
Easy setup and maintenance
A vegetated Completa weighs only 18 kg per module and can be installed at an average speed of 450m2 per day by a single worker. Maintenance is done by simply removing the trays, with no damage to the plants or roof functionality.
Supports plant growth
Completa is made of perforated Polypropylene that is resistant to chemicals and microorganisms, which allows a healthy environment for plant growth and drainage.
Protects the waterproofing
Completa creates a durable, stable green surface that covers the waterproofing membrane, protecting it from foot traffic and weather events.
Completa retains and gradually releases up to 20 l/m2 of rainwater that would otherwise require management, mitigating floods caused by heavy rainfall.
Decreases urban heat island
Green roofs reduce pollution and lower local outdoor temperatures in summer, having a cumulative effect on decreasing urban heat islands.
