Richardson Roofing carried out both the cladding and flat roofing works to this 192 unit student and 8 number affordable housing development. The project made the shortlist of the CIRIA Big Biodiversity Challenge Awards 2018; for both the Temporary and Champion Awards. The biodiversity enhancement focused on supporting Swifts which are a threatened species and a “Species of Importance” in the Brighton and Hove Local Biodiversity Action Plan. The plants installed on the green roof by Richardson Roofing attract insects that the Swifts feed on, and information boards also detailed how the local community could help Swifts. Our works helped support a threatened species and provided a habitat for many other species too.
