Groundwork and Hammersmith & Fulham Council are working together to demonstrate how retrofitting open spaces on housing estates can be a cost effective solution to improving the capital’s resilience to climate change. Responding to an increasing flood risk and rising temperatures, we’ve designed and implemented open space adaptation schemes on three housing estates, incorporating green roofs and integrated Sustainable Urban Drainage Systems (SuDS).
View the winning designs from our international Design For Life competition 2015.
Discover more about each SuDS scheme, on three housing estates in Hammersmith & Fulham.
We engaged residents in the design of the SuDS schemes and in sustainability champion training.
