Welcome to ZinCo, your Specialist for Innovative, Durable and Sustainable Green Roofs

It is not only the many and varied benefits of green roofs that inspire architects and planners throughout the world, but the seemingly endless opportunities to design and redefine roofs, giving character to individual buildings and entire areas. Creative urban planners are increasingly identifying roof space as a hugely under-utilized urban resource capable of assisting in counteracting the loss of natural living spaces.

Green Roofs are Extending the Variety of Contemporary Architecture

A golf course on a company building, a roof top off-road vehicle test track, a colourful roof garden or flowers blooming on your garage, virtually anything is possible with the correct green roof specification! With ZinCo green roof systems, there is virtually no limit to green roof design. See for yourself!

“Le Cordon Bleu” in Paris – An instructive and tasty roof

“Le Cordon Bleu” is the name of the renowned international cookery school that opened its new headquarters in Paris in June 2016 and that has a particularly valuable treasure: a 1011 m² roof garden that allows for the cultivation of an abundance of native and exotic fruit, vegetables and herbs. The garden supplies the kitchen with tasty ingredients and at the same time is part of the educational programme at “Le Cordon Bleu”. In addition, the roof is home to four bee hives and an insect hotel. A wonderful example of urban farming, i. e. farming in an urban setting, because rooftops with the right ZinCo green roof are ideal for use as a cultivation area.
