Meadow Cladding demonstrator with Josef Gartner GmbH

News / Dec 1, 2023

Our first Vertical Meadow Cladding demonstrator is currently being grown and tested in Gundelfingen, Germany.

We are excited to announce details of our demonstrator project with Josef Gartner GmbH (part of the Permasteelisa Group) which is currently being grown and tested in Gundelfingen, Germany.

Following the recent launch of our new Meadow Cladding system, we have been working in collaboration with Gartner to develop its first prototype of a meadow façade using our patented façade greening solution which grows native wildflower meadows that are designed to restore and enhance biodiversity in cities.

In the midst of climate change, increasing urbanisation, and legislative and policy requirements, the integration of green façades is becoming a necessary element in architecture and construction.

The project is the result of a research project carried out with Gartner – one of the world’s most advanced façade contractors – to demonstrate the integration of our system into a curtain wall façade.

“This new innovative façade explores new ways of making our cities more enjoyable and livable, offering vital year-round support for biodiversity whilst also helping mitigate urban overheating locally.”

As we move closer to Biodiversity Net Gain (BNG) becoming a mandatory part of the planning system in England and the implementation of more stringent EU biodiversity regulations, we believe our Meadow Cladding technology offers a great opportunity for sustainable architecture and opens up completely new possibilities.
