Project report

Due to topographical reasons the hotel access was only possible crossing the top of a two story deep underground garage. This was a technical challenge for the engineers of the ZinCo technical department but also for the contractors Vallimper and Jardinatura. A sufficiently dimensioned base layer had to be created for the heavy load traffic whilst integrating the green areas with the high palm trees. The palm species “Howea forsteriana” grows up to 50 ft. (15 m) in height. The remaining green roof area consists of lawn which is irrigated by an automatic system.
