Förslag på renoveringsprojekt för den bebyggda staden: Att anlägga gröna tak inom Halmstads kommun
Independent thesis Basic level (university diploma), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
Since cities are becoming more densely built, the green areas are replaced with roads and buildings, which increase the proportion of hard surfaces. The construction industry has a great responsibility concerning this and sustainability is a big part of the design of new buildings. By implementing green roofs on both new constructed buildings and already existing buildings, the replaced green areas will be recovered. With green roofs this study refers to extensive green roofs.
The selected area in central Halmstad consists of both new and older buildings. Cultural labeling legally protects most of the older buildings. This label protects the building from demolition and renovation. These buildings are thus excluded from the survey.
The remaining roofs in the area are categorized, based on its design and inclination. The different types of roofs in these categories have different conditions in the construction of green roofs. The aim is to obtain a potential area of the relevant roofs that have the potential to implement green roofs of their construction. The expectation is that this study will be considered to be general and could be applied to other areas as well.
