THE FIRST URBAN BUS ON ROUTE WITH A ROOF GARDEN MADE POSSIBLE BY AQUAPRO® SKYGARDENS.
Grupo IRACO completes the FIRST URBAN BUS WITH A ROOF GARDEN (route l’Estartit-Girona).
An artistic and environmental project designed and promoted by MARC GRAÑEN. The aim: to increase green areas within cities, reducing CO2 and encouraging the proliferation of pollinators, essential to plant reproduction.
AQUAPRO® SkyGardens were chosen for their adaptability and waterproofing, adhesive and resistance properties.
The AQUAPRO® PY 5000 – VYE system designed and applied by Grupo IRACO incorporates 100% PURE POLYUREA combined with VYDRO FLAKE substrate, based on hydrophilic foam spreading out the risk processes. Currently being studied is the use of water from air conditioning units, to supply the risk system making it totally self sufficient.
This Project may be the future solution for increasing green spaces in large cities. In Barcelona with a mobile park of 1,000 buses, with 30m2 surface area on each, this would represent 30,000m2 of roof gardens in constant movement.
