)-- Garden Bridge at Universal Studios
Modern green roof technology with comprehensive design and engineering solutions enables visitors to cross a busy four-lane highway without leaving the lush greening of a park.
The garden bridge at Universal Studios in Orlando is the first of its kind in Florida or even in the entire US. Designed by Miles Architecture Group Inc., Libra Design Group and Green Roof Service LLC, the green bridge creates an innovative connection of Universal City developments.
Selected ground covers, shrubs and trees escort pedestrians almost without notice that they are crossing over a busy highway. The distinctive landmark project is engineered with people in mind.
"We are extremely happy getting involved in more and more innovative projects with living green on ground remote location," says Jörg Breuning, CEO at Green Roof Service LLC and continues," we built real grass on Cruise Ships, advanced Solar Garden Roof integrations and combinations of blue and green roofs. However this project is a new milestone for smart green solutions in our cities."
Unique projects require unique solutions. Keeping the costs for the structure low, the trees are located above the bridge's pillars. The walkway gently winds up to the bridge and over. It provides easy access for the handicapped or service carts.
This innovative green roof project is a master piece of team work between architects, structural engineers, landscape architects and green roof professionals with an open mind and encouragement from the client for something different.
