HAVE YOU SEEN? YOUR ROOF IS TURNING BLUE-GREEN!

Something is going to happen on the roofs of Kattenburg! The students of the building at Bijltjespad (2-82) & Kattenburgerstraat (10-28) will soon have a smart, blue-green roof. Blue-green?! Yes blue-green, which means a blue layer for the storage of water and a green layer consisting of vegetation. The water can be discharged through a ‘smart valve’. This smart valve responds to the weather forecast and opens and closes automatically at the right times. It will make the city more climate adaptive, it increases biodiversity and will lower the temperature in the rooms of the building (especially on the upper level).

On Tuesday, February 16th RESILIO organised an online meet-up where everything about blue-green roofs, climate adaptation and biodiversity was explained. If you have any questions regarding the Kattenburg project or about RESILIO please use the form below to contact us!

OPENING INNOVATIONLAB

In July last year we organized a meeting for the local residents of the RESILIO neighbourhoods. This event took place on the first built RESLIO roof, the InnovationLab on the roof of the Amsterdam University of Applied Sciences, where the residents could admire the smart blue-green roof and ask their questions to our experts. Here you can read the report of that day and you can watch the YouTube video to see the highlights of the event!

    KATTENBURG IN THE FUTURE:

    BLUE-GREEN ROOF EXPERT ROOS


    Who am I?

    My name is Roos Nieuwesteeg and I work at Rooftop Revolution. One of the partners of the RESILIO project and responsible for clear communication and participation with local residents. Rooftop Revolution’s mission is to to realize as many green roofs as possible. We do this for the city and preferably together with ambitious residents. That is why I would like to involve you in the RESILIO project!


    What do I do as a blue-green roof expert for RESILIO?

    Blue-green RESILIO roofs will be built in 5 neighborhoods in Amsterdam. My goal is to involve all residents of these neighborhoods as much as possible in the development of the project. Which means; to tell what the project entails, show what will be on the roofs (from the different layers of the construction to the various types of vegetation), and explain why blue-green roofs are good for you and the environment. I will regularly visit the neighborhoods (taking into consideration the Covid-19 measurements) to talk with people about the execution of the blue-green roof, greening, but also about developments in the neighborhood.

    Any questions? Ask me!
