Vancouver, BC, Canada — The Architek Group of Companies, with its commendable legacy since 2007, has been a beacon of innovation in sustainable urban development. It focuses on green and blue roof technologies. Architek’s holistic approach encompasses the design, installation, and maintenance of these eco-friendly roofs, demonstrating a profound commitment to enhancing urban resilience and aesthetic appeal.

Renowned for their meticulous biophilic projects, Architek’s GRP-accredited team crafts living architecture solutions that harmonize with any urban setting across Canada. Their green roofs are celebrated for addressing the heat island effect in dense areas and improving building performance while supporting environmental health. Similarly, their blue roof systems offer an advanced method for managing stormwater, playing a crucial role in urban water conservation efforts and following the Cities Water Strategies.

A key aspect of their work is the commitment to exceptional biophilic design, ensuring that projects like the 410 West Georgia in Vancouver  seamlessly incorporate nature from the beginning. This approach not only aids in achieving LEED Platinum targeted but also contributes to a reduction in bird strikes, demonstrating a harmonious blend of functionality and environmental stewardship with their partnered company, Rope and Cable Canada.

By seamlessly integrating green roofs, living walls, green facades, and water conservation technologies, Architek sets the standard for living architecture in Canada. Their commitment to quality and sustainability is further evidenced by the full warranty on their green roofs, underscoring their status as a trusted leader in the industry.
