Reliable Green Roofing Systems for Utilised Roof Landscapes
In their sum of their positive ecological and economical characteristics, green roofs make a relevant contribution toward achieving future-oriented sustainable architecture. ZinCo provides tried and tested solutions worldwide for all types of green roofing. Our programme extends from extensive green roofing as an ecological protective covering or in conjunction with a photovoltaic system to roof gardens and green roofing of underground car park roofs with pathways or driveways. System-integrated, fall-prevention systems that are installed without the need for roof penetration are also an integral part of our system solutions for greened roofs.

Travelling by boat across Lake Constance to Mainau Island you will be treated to views of floral splendour, a Baroque castle and – since March 2014 – the re-designed harbour area on the lakeside around Comturey Tower. The new single-storey Comturey building has an almost 80 m long glazed façade overlooking the lake while its three other sides disappear into the surrounding landscape and its roof is accessible as part of the landscaped gardens. Thanks to the ZinCo system build-up Roof Garden, the Mainau landscape architects had considerable freedom when designing and planning the almost 1500 m² roof. They have created a new paradise for visitors to this unique location.
