Investing in Living Walls: Factors for Specification and Maintenance (19-20 April 2018)

Living Walls have increasingly become more prevalent with numerous new systems on the market. For anyone specifying living walls, trying to determine their value or any underlying problems, there is overwhelming and often biased information that hampers decision making.

Topics Covered:

  • The benefits of living walls (ecosystems services)
  • Differing system types and their relative sustainability
  • Plan selection (basic)
  • Maintenance requirements
  • Fire regulations relating to living walls

Day Two will be mainly practical with a study tour of selected living walls, to see first-hand issues relating to their installation and maintenance. This will involve walking outdoors, wear suitable clothing. The day will end with a round table discussion of the theoretical and practical issues of living walls. Participants to pay for own transport costs during the day.

Please note lunch is not provided.
