The Green Roof Consultancy (GRC), grew out of work undertaken by Livingroofs.org and The Ecology Consultancy Limited, whilst working on the London Living Roofs and Walls technical report for the Greater London Authority. Two of its directors, Gary Grant and Dusty Gedge are recognised leaders in the field of green roofs, walls and ecosystem services. The team develops green roof systems to meet complex sustainability and ecological considerations. They have designed a number of seminal green roofs and walls and regularly provide full green roof, green wall and ecosystem services training in the UK.
Green roof technology is also widespread and well-established in mainland Europe with growing interest in the UK. Green roofs are set to become a popular technology within the UK refurbishment and development industries. However currently there is limited knowledge and understanding of this technology beyond the main suppliers. The Green Roof Consultancy was the first specialist consultancy to provide this in the UK.

Green roof inspections are another service the Green Roof Consultancy undertakes. Several hundred green roofs have been installed over the last 15 years and in some cases bad installation has led to problems and dissatisfied owners and tenants. Our service is independent and includes a detailed and forensic assessment of specifications, contracts and the build-up and vegetation of the green roofs in question.
Announcing the Herne Hill Highline London green roof project, GRC would like to celebrate Urban Wild. Whilst other similar projects in London have been initiated by professionals, Urban Wild was established is a pair of local people, who approach GRC to help then to achieve their unique vision.
