GROOF is an interdisciplinary research project funded by Interreg NWE. Its mission is to define the state of the art of the rooftop/building integrated greenhouse as part of hyperlocalising food production and mitigating built environment GHG emissions. It has launched an open call for rooftop or facade-integrated greenhouse projects which they will coach for free from March 2022-23. The open call is targeting projects in UK, Ireland, Germany, Netherlands, France, Luxembourg and Belgium.
The coaching would run alongside each project's own design and development and would draw on GROOF's experience delivering 4 pilot projects as well as coaching a further five EU projects. GROOF will advise on design, construction, metabolics, energy modelling and operations.
Projects will have ideally already achieved planning permission and at least secured consent by the building owner with an outline of ambitions.
