This is the first green roof to be installed in Grangemouth that has been designed with biodiversity in mind.
Work has been carried out through IFLI's Glorious Green Roofs project which has been managed by Buglife, and is funded by the National Lottery through the Heritage Lottery Fund, and the EU LIFE programme.
Almost 60 species of wildflower and grasses native to Britain have been planted onto the roof. Species of wildflower include common bird's foot trefoil and kidney vetch that the caterpillars of common blue butterflies feed on as well as red clover, required by bumblebees for the essential amino acids they provide.
Buglife is working with local industry to create a network of green roofs at industrial sites, predominantly in Grangemouth, but potentially further afield around the IFLI area. It aims to help people to understand the importance of green roofs for invertebrates and other wildlife, how green roofs can benefit the building, and how they can support local and rare species including Local Biodiversity Action Plan priority species.
Suzanne Burgess, conservation officer with Buglife, said: "This biodiverse green roof will provide an important stopping point for bees, hoverflies and other insects moving through Grangemouth. A diversity of wildflowers has been planted to benefit a wide range of pollinating insect species as well as other wildlife."
John Walker, estates manager at CalaChem, said: "CalaChem are delighted to be supporting this project and are looking forward to the wildflowers and grasses getting established and the bug life increasing. This has been a great example of what can be done with industrial roofs to both benefit wildlife and improve assets."
