How much value can a roof generate?

We can help you strategically assess your cost of ownership by clarifying the absolute costs of a roof during its lifetime. With a hands-on-approach from the start, we’ll provide guidance throughout your project, plus full follow-ups including roofing inspections at each stage of your roof lifecycle.

We provide Building Information Modeling (BIM) assets to help you identify potential pain-points right from the earliest design stage. BIM content also helps you to keep an up-to-date record for your buildings, so that you can stay on top of maintenance and upgrades.

Improving employee wellbeing

Improving employee wellbeing

Imagine if you could make your roof a space for employees to collaborate and enjoy a better work-life balance.

We all know that getting out of the office and into the fresh air can improve creativity and productivity, so investing in something like a communal roof garden, all-weather running track, or football pitch on your roof can help to nurture a better company culture, ultimately improving the quality of work and profit.

As well as being a great way to wow customers and retain the best talent, utilising untapped roofsaces also increases your property’s available space, and with it your potential rental yields and future resale value.

Sustainable roofing

BMI’s innovative sustainable roofing solutions can help you comply with government regulations and obtain LEED or BREEAM certification. Your roof can significantly reduce your business’s impact on the environment and help you to hit sustainability and CSR targets. 

A great example of this is our work to create a self-watering green roof for the new L’Oréal Hair Research Centre in Paris, built to minimise the impact of greenhouse gases as well as providing excellent thermal performance and ecological water management.

The options are wide-ranging and the opportunities huge. You could harness your empty roof space to generate power through solar panels, reducing operating costs and guaranteeing a long-term source of power at a fixed cost. 

Or, you could transform your roof into an open green space for employees to enjoy, improving productivity and company culture. If you also invested in a BMI Blue Roof you could collect rainwater for irrigation or grey water plumbing. As well as adding value to your roof, you’re also helping your neighbours by controlling water runoff into sewer systems and helping to prevent localised flooding.

Future thinking with Noxite

Future thinking with Noxite

Imagine if every roof in your city could transform harmful air pollution into fresh air. With our smart Noxite membrane, this could become reality.

Noxite incorporates TiO2 (titanium dioxide) granules that transform harmful NOx (nitrogen oxide) pollutants created by road transport, manufacturing and power production into harmless nitrates at lower levels than you’d find in bottled water. This state-of-the-art process remains active for the entire lifespan of the roof, providing a continual investment for the future.

Keeping cool

Keeping cool

The pigments in our Protegon concrete roof tiles reflect 300% more infrared rays than traditional tiles. This means they can help keep roofs and surrounding areas cooler and thus can improve the comfort levels in living spaces.

For large, flat roofed buildings such as offices, schools, hospitals and industrial premises, our specialist range of highly-reflective white waterproofing membranes reflect solar radiation to create what is often called a ‘cool roof’. These are particularly useful in sunny countries as they do not absorb as much heat as dark roof materials, reducing the energy demand from air-cooling units and thermal stress on the roof system.
