The roofing industry is developing increasing numbers of blue roofs in new-builds and refurbishments to tackle flood risks. Blue roofs attenuate rainwater rather than drain it as fast as possible, collecting the water in a cellular geocomposite drainage/retention board and releasing it over a period of many hours via a discharge control mechanism. The blue roof elements can be installed under green roof components. Codes of practice are being drafted by industry insiders to be presented to the Government as a more widespread flood defence option.
