About the Event

Buildings integrated vegetation (BIV) consists of modular planting systems for green walls and roofs that can provide an aesthetic restorative solution for densely built urban areas with limited access to conventional green spaces. Deployed on a large scale it could also lead to societal benefits from improved public and environmental health, new opportunities for artistic expression and the development of a new 'green' service industry. This talk will discuss the issues surrounding BIV and Dr McBurney's work in development of novel modular planting systems. 

Dr McBurney develops novel vertical planting systems as a private venture under the title 'Vertical Greening'. He has a background in academic and commercial horticultural research.
