Green roof at LAGERBOX in Berlin Schöneweide-Köpenick
More colour for Berlin! This is becoming the unofficial motto at LAGERBOX and our Berlin-based locations, particularly regarding our extensive green roofs. In addition to our location in Berlin Lichtenberg-Marzahn, we have now also planted many colourful plants on the roof of our LAGERBOX facility in Schöneweide-Köpenick.
Since most people still don’t know about the features and benefits of extensive green roofs, we want to provide you with some more detail on this project.
Much like Cologne Ossendorf, which has reached self-sufficiency using solar power, our facility in Schöneweide-Köpenick is committed to protecting the environment and increasing sustainability. It opened last year. On the roof, we planted low-growth plants like mosses, succulents, herbs, and grasses, which are very low-maintenance and give the building a more natural look. The reasons are mainly ecological. However, the very low maintenance efforts involved with these types of plants also make them an easy plant to cultivate, which is why we recommend them to private households, too. Any type of roof can become a green roof. At LAGERBOX, we decided not to focus on the word “green” too much. We prefer the word “colourful” in any case because diversity in all its forms is very important to us—as is protecting the environment and the climate. For this reason, we decided against using gravel for protecting our surfaces. Additionally, using gravel requires a lot more maintenance. Thanks to a lot of rain and sun this year, visitors can already admire a colourful sea of plants on top of our building.
Great transport connections make our facility in Schöneweide-Köpenick easy to reach for all our customers.
In general, we try to implement environmental protection in our company on a sustainable basis in many nooks and crannies. All measures can be read here - link
LAGERBOX is located on Michael-Brückner-Strasse 32 and, with that, directly on the B96a, one of Berlin’s main roads. In addition, our location is close to the airport and easily accessible by public transport or even by lorry. The district is a hotspot for traffic and business, featuring many companies from all major industries, as well as a residential area.
Our security and service standards are part of the package as usual and include coded access, alarm systems and video surveillance, a free-of-charge transport van for moving as well as many other free transport aids. Business customers can also use our goods receiving service.
