All Year Round Green Open Space Above New Lidl Store, Epsom

Working with construction firm Adston, the new Lidl store in Epsom has a resplendent artificial green roof, courtesy of specialist supplier and installer, EverRoof®. Above the new store and casting a hard-wearing evergreen artificial grass expanse across the open space, the 640 square metre roof garden sits in front of 30 new apartments, ready for its occupants. The EverRoof team completed the fire-classified and wind-resistant artificial green roof system in March 2022. The EVR1 system, widely used on similar projects across the UK, is unique in its materials, construction, and classification for use on roof surfaces. Made from Wonder Yarn, its real-life appearance is both durable and easy to maintain. The system is laid on Forcefield Foam, a 30mm shock-absorbing layer, beneath which lies a drainage layer, Ever Drain. The completion of the green roof has been praised by the main contractor and building contractor responsible for all elements of the build.

EVR-1

"This was the first time I had worked with an artificial green roof supplier. From the first discussions after the system had been recommended to us and specified on the project, we had confidence and peace of mind that the end result would be impressive - and it is! The team and the system’s credentials are a credit to Jim (Footitt, Managing Director, Evergreens UK Group) who was involved throughout."
