Turda Green Roof


The need to optimize the thermal efficiency of the administrative building of Turda grinding station led to the installation of a green roof, a project with minimum implementation costs, implemented by the joint efforts of Holcim employees.

The old platform roof of the administration building was covered in tar, which resulted in excessive heating during summer, when the inside temperatures reached 36C, and made it difficult to maintain optimum levels during winter, when temperatures dropped to 10C. Following the installation of the new roof, the temperature was reduced during summer, whereas in winter, due to the improved thermal efficiency, we managed to reduce the number of operational heaters, thus lowering the carbon footprint of the building.
