case studies



Onyx, a 1025-bedroom student accommodation project developed, designed and built by McAleer & Rushe, was targeted to- and has achieved- BREEAM “very good”. Part of the BREEAM achievement is directly attributable to the green roof and landscaped roof garden, attaining points in three of the five categories- Health & Wellbeing, Resource & Energy and Land Use & Ecology.

Located in Lancaster Circus, Onyx features two towers, 13 and 24 storeys respectively, connected by a ten-storey link. The scheme features an artificial grass area and paving on the top 24th floor and a similar grassed area, paved walkway, cobbles, planters and sedum green roof atop the ten-storey building, both supplied and installed by Eco Green Roofs Ltd (EGR)on behalf of waterproofing contractor Able Waterproofing. EGR also supplied their bespoke soil to planters across the ground level courtyard.
